DCP. Despite the remarkable work of image restoring, the attached soundtrack is horrendous and imposing, seriously disturbing the film's viewing. Another masterpiece of Pabst's silent period, this time synthesizing the three major trends of the time in German cinema - kammerspiel, expressionism and realism - in the same film, exponentiating them as hallucinated visions of each one.
When I speak of my love for silent cinema, this is the type of film I mean, not cheap slapstick. Emotionally and historically complex, and fabulous visually. Contemporary cinema (talkies) in no way surpasses this silent gem, directed by the great Georg Wilhelm Pabst. Shot on location in 1920's Paris.
