A 43-minute condensation of this silent film can be found as an Extra Feature on the Kino Video DVD of _Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The (1920)_ The full-length version can only be viewed at the Munich City Film Museum archive in Germany. See more »
I saw this on the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari DVD. It was really good. It had a dreamy quality. As if it was otherworldly or something. I was mesmerized. It wasn't spectacular or amazing like Caligari, but I was nonetheless impressed. Also it had a different quality than Calgari. So you can't really compare the two. But if you like silent films, or the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, than I'd recommend this movie. Plus, the imagery was wonderful, it almost felt like the same kind of atmosphere as when you are drifting off to sleep. Though this is not a film for those with a short attention span. Another plus is that this movie was directed by Robert Wiene, an amazing director.
