Storyline

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes." Hans and Kumpan repeatedly try to enter a town surrounded by a tall, impenetrable wall, where everyone is apparently very happy. When they finally make it inside, the tyrannical emperor demands they make him new clothes that would 'bring all creatures to their knees'. Hans and Kumpan claim only intelligent people would be able to see the clothes, so the emperor haughtily displays himself before his subjects wearing the "invisible clothes" to prove himself clever. Das Kleid was banned for ten years because of its association with the Berlin Wall and the despots surrounded by it. Written by Anonymous

fairy-tale not like by socialist authorities
24 May 2000 | by (Southampton, UK) – See all my reviews

Das Kleid was forbidden by the GDR's censorship in 1961, as the authorities felt that this adaptation of Andersen's fairy-tale was too much of a criticism of their own dictatorship in socialist East-Germany. It's a beautifully done film with good camera angles and occasional expressionistic visions.
