Omtale: Law and Film
This collection brings together contemporary work from Britain, Germany and the United States on how law and lawyers have been represented in film, particularly in the past 40 years. It seeks to provide an overview of existing work on law and film. The essays cover the portrayal of the Anglo-American legal system in film. The volume includes work on the history and development of this screen coverage. It also provides a contrast between the Anglo-American and European approach to filming law. Special attention is devoted to influential film makers. The relationship between fact, fiction and film is explored. There is discussion of what amounts to a "law film". The impact of the adversarial system on Continental popular culture is also assessed.
