Fascinating piece of history
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Anders als die Andern" (Different from the Others) is a 1919 German film starring Conrad Veidt that was pieced together and shown at one point on public television. About a law on the books that makes homosexuality a crime, it had a very short run in Germany before being pulled, and people who attended the movie were harassed.

The lead is played by a German actor familiar to American audiences, usually for portraying a bad guy, Conrad Veidt. Despite dying in 1943, Veidt had a nearly 30-year career in films. Here he plays possibly the first gay character in cinema who, with such a law in place, is a target for a blackmailer.

A very interesting film with a wonderful performance by Veidt. Only part of the movie remains, but it has been put together as well as can be expected - it is, after all, a mere 87 years old. It's amazing how relevant some of the material in it remains today.
