While not perfect, it's a wonderful overview of what was the best film production company in Europe.
20 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show contains spoilers--not my review. Although I loved this episode of "Cinema Europe", my oldest daughter was made because the film makers spoiled several films. In other words, they told the endings of some of great films of German cinema! So, if you haven't seen "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" or "The Last Laugh", for examples, you should NOT watch the documentary unless you have no intention of ever watching the films. This is rather unforgivable--and unnecessary. So, even though I enjoyed this episode the most, I can't help but take away a point because of this.

Despite this serious problem, there were two things I adored about this episode about German films. First, the choices of films were excellent and many, many examples were given. While I had seen almost all of them, any NORMAL person who hasn't reviewed over 10000 films will not have! Second, I particularly loved how the show showed many of the wonderful film tricks the Germans created--showing exactly how they did this. Seeing models and mirrors used to create these effects blew me away--and I was very excited to see this.

A super-important episode about the powerhouse film producing country--see this one--unless you DON'T want to know how so many films ended!
