film of my life
3 September 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The Amsterdam film museum made a wonderful fresh restaurated copy of the Robber Symphony, which today, Sept. 3 2006, was shown on TV in the Netherlands, after a promised emission some years ago failed. Nobody should miss this wonderful artistic and musical happening of 1936(!!!!!) in black and white. One wonders where the nature shots where made, the landscape is surrealistic, though many scenes are clearly in a studio setting.

I saw this film in the fifties an never could forget it, neither the the themes of the music played by the London Philharmonics. So today was a Sentimental Journey.

The funny thing is that the film is described as "a musical", though it couldn't be further away from a contemporary musical. A musical "avant la lettre".
