Below are just a few of the books and e-books available in the library's collection that may be helpful in your research. You may want to try the search tool if you are looking at one of our e-books or consult the index for the print titles. However, just because your particular film is not mentioned, that does not mean it will not be a good resource! Many of these books mention cultural themes from that country's cinema history that may be present in the film you are researching.
For a more exhaustive search, please go to our library catalog and try search terms like:
"Motion pictures France" (or Germany, Russia, Spain, Israel, etc.)
