Hans Adalbert Schlettow,
A crippled mailman is in love with a maid who lives in the same building he does in one of the city's poor neighborhoods. She, however, is in love with a wealthy, handsome young man. Desperate to win her love, he begins to intercept love letters they send to each other and replaces them with his own messages, which each thinks is from the other. His plan seems to be succeeding, but then something happens that bring tragic results to them all. Written by
The characters are so intimate, and the set designs are creepy and beautiful. everyone should embrace this awkward, overly dramatic type of theater presented before us in Backstairs. If you do, you're in for serious interpersonal relationships. The absence of title cards really helps develop these characters; i never thought title cards took the audience out of the relationships of on-screen personalities so much. if you come across a print like this-- WATCH IT! The lighting is beautiful and so is the mis en scen. It's a lot more dark than any American film that came out around this time. it's unforgettable and smarter than more movies i've seen from the infancy of cinema.
