Summary/Abstract: Praised or ignored postmodernism is a fact in cinema. The original contribution of postmodern film aesthetics is basic regarding form and structural know-how but one cannot deny the underlined, repeated interest of postmodern works for specific stories and problems. Among those one can outline such themes as manipulation, the power of mass media, alienation, our hectic life, the motives of the perfect race or the end of the world. Postmodern cinema shows a pronounced interest for them. And in spite of the fact that they cannot be classified as postmodern, they certainly are subjected to a determined postmodern interpretation in the cinema at the end of the 20th century.
