Crossing New Europe: Postmodern Travel and the European Road Movie
by
Ewa Mazierska, Laura Rascaroli

Although a long-established and influential genre, this is the first comprehensive study of the European road cinema. "Crossing New Europe" investigates this tradition, its relationship with the American road movie and its aesthetic forms. This movement examines such crucial issues as individual and national identity crises, and phenomena such as displacement, diaspora, exile, migration, nomadism, and tourism in postmodern, post-Berlin Wall Europe. Drawing on the work of Said, Hall, Shields, Urry, Bauman, Deleuze and Guattari and other critical theorists, "Crossing New Europe" adopts a broad interpretation of "Europe" and discusses directors and films who have long been associated with the road movie, such as Wim Wenders ( "Alice in the Cities," Lisbon Story) and Aki Kaurismki (Leningrad Cowboys Go America!), and other more recent contributions such as Run Lola Run, Dear Diary and The Last Resort.

Review

'Crossing New Europe: Postmodern Travel and the European Road Movie provides a highly informative, accessibly written and remarkably comprehensive transnational perspective on European film. Providing the first systematic analysis of the road movie genre in a European context, this book marks an important scholarly intervention, and is likely to become an indispensable reference for scholars, students and fans of European cinema.' – Tim Bergfelder, Southampton University
