Clumsy German propaganda movie
11 April 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Paul -(The Golem)- Wegener's `Ein Mann will nach Deutschland' (A German Wants to Go Home), an UFA-production that premiered on 26th July 1934, portrays a German engineer living in South America who hears in 1914 of war in Europe. Realising his obligation for his ‘fatherland', he sets out for Europe, joined by a German comrade. The journey to Germany involves physical hardships, treacherous terrain, and hostile seas, obstacles faced by patriots who have only one thought: home to Germany to help a fatherland under attack.

This Nazi-propaganda picture was one of many made during that time, gradually preparing the Germans for the next war.

The acting is wooden and the intention of this movie all too obvious.
