Masterpiece of German Silents from Expressionist 1920's
9 September 2002 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

Caught the incredible performance of Brigitte Helm in this forgotten classic at the 2002 Telluride Film Festival. Experience was enhanced by live orchestration by Mont Alto Orchestra. Helm, who was also great in Fritz Lang's Metropolis, goes from ice queen to awakened woman in love with fluidity. The finale is bittersweet. Catch it if you have the opportunity. You won't be sorry.
