Lovely old comedy
13 February 2008 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

This was Karl Valentin's first feature-length movie, as well as his last silent movie. Talkies allowed him to present his extravagant verbal humor, but also in Der Sonderling does he deliver many funny moments - from his fakely prolonged nose to various slapstick acts. Notable for his black humor are especially the failed suicide scenes in the end.

"Boy wonder" Gustl Gstettenbaur also plays a nice part as the teenage seducer (he was 15 at the time, but had acted in a number of movies already, including Fritz Lang's "Spione" and "Frau im Mond"). Truus van Aalten is his cute and naughty girl counterpart.

The skeleton plot: a tailor in want of money finds a 100 mark bill (equivalent to some 1000 in today's currency) in the pocket of a jacket he is ironing. He first takes it, but later regrets and puts it back - though erroneously into another, similar jacket. Tribulations with the original owner and the finder ensue. It is interesting that this same plot line, though with very different fillings, appears again 7 years later in Valentin's "Donner, Blitz und Sonnenschein"...
