it's a document
5 May 2006 | by rusbeckSee all my reviews

this movie is more or less a document about a book (Die Stadt ohne Juden) from Hugo Bettauer. As a movie itself it shows the typical problems of a film industry in Vienna in the beginning of the 20's.

It is on a meta level a great pleasure. A lot of very interesting people and locations. In the historical context the movie is one of the most interesting documents we have in the movie history of central Europe. It shows that people had an idea what there future would like to be. The most interesting part is the vision of a Vienna without an important minority. It seems like a vary of stereotypes but its a fact that some visions turned into real.

The locations are partly showing buildings and interiors of the 20's and were later identified as "typical Jewish". Like the sanatorium Purkersdorf , or the "jugenstil" interior.

The movie is a great puzzle of statements of the early 20's in an community before the big economic crises and the Holocaust.
