Fritz Lang, 1931, 107 min, b/w, starring Peter Lorre
Regarded as one of the best German films, ever made, "M" tells the story of a manhunt for a child murderer. Fritz Lang early on had recognized the internal links between sound and image and manages to make the inner feelings of the sexual predator so intensely visible, that you can’t but feel for him.
|The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles celebrates 40 years of Berlin – L.A. Sister-City Relations with this year-long program spanning from rarely seen silents to East- and West- German filmproductions to the cutting-edge films of the last Berlin Filmfestival. |
STARRING BERLIN presents key films, not only in a film-historic, but also film-aesthetic context.
Thrillers (M, Angels of Iron), comedies (One ,Two, Three, Run Lola Run), dramas (The Last Laugh, The Downfall) and the occasional documentary (Look at this city) make for a challenging, highly informative and entertaining year of films.
STARRING BERLIN invites the viewer to experience 100 years in the life of Berlin as seen in its films.
The first segment (January through April) covers the periods of post-World War I and Weimar Germany and ends with the first post-World War II film and German anti-war classic Die Mörder sind unter uns (The Murderers are among us).
