Between 1933-45, UFA was not the only German producer, but was in control of the distribution. For this circumstance, we have included films from other German producers, made at the same period.

Extra: Orient yourself! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_films_of_1933%E2%80%9345 .

We noticed the need to create a page IV. On this last page, alongside art films, there are films with controversial ideological content
