This Pandora's Box Remake is, Unfortunately, Weaker than the Louise Brooks Version
14 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This 1962 remake of Pandora's Box by Austrian director Rolfe Thiel is a lesser vehicle than the 1929 silent version. Nonetheless, it is competently made with good use of black and white cinematography imparting the atmosphere of the Weimar Republic.

Nadja Tiller is by no means incompetent in the lead role but she is by no means as iconic as Louise Brooks. Making her a blonde was probably a good idea to reinforce the notion that this is a different film with a different Lulu but it also makes her that much less memorable than Louise with her trademark appearance.

Liberal use is made of soft-focus photography, emphasising that the film is set in the part and highlighting the vulnerability of its lead.

Overall, though, scenes are less well-orchestrated than in the previous version. There is no ambiguity here as to whether or not Lulu pulls the trigger to kill her lover and there is little tension at the end when Jack the Ripper appears. The murder happens so quickly, one feels the film is very much anti-climactic.

The narrative is told in a straightforward, realist manner and lacks bravura. It is a competently-made film and, perhaps an overlooked one but it is difficult not to compare it to its predecessor and it pales by comparison.
