Mutter Krause and her children live in the poorer section of Berlin's Wedding district. The film depicts the cruelty of poverty and communism as a rescuing force that reaches Mutter Krause and the child too late.
Masterpiece of German Silents from Expressionist 1920's
Caught the incredible performance of Brigitte Helm in this forgotten classic at the 2002 Telluride Film Festival. Experience was enhanced by live orchestration by Mont Alto Orchestra.
