Germany 1960-1980

A (messy) list of West German films of the 1960s and 70s.

The two primary sources are:

- Robert Fischer & Joe Hembus: Der Neue Deutsche Film. 1960 - 1980. Goldmann: 1981.
- Hans-Peter Reichmann & Rudolf Worschech: Abschied vom Gestern. Bundesdeutscher Film der sechziger und siebziger Jahre. Deutsches Filmmuseum: 1991.

I excluded Edgar Wallace and other crime films; they can be found here.

If you have seen other worthwhile German films of these decades, let me know.
