The article analyzes the developments in the film industry in the fall of 2005 in Germany. Many observers view the 2005 was a loss year for the film industry in the nation. The cinema admissions dropped 19% and the boxoffice declined 17%. Practically there was no DVD boom. This crisis created the industry's worst year in more than a decade. DVD and high-speed Internet penetration in the nation have reached its peak point, sabotaging the nation's theatrical business. In addition to this film pirates have contributed their own way to hit the industry.
