Movie Info

Fritz Lang was a stickler for realism in his American films; not so his German silents, which were fanciful to the point of being fairy tales.

It's hard to understand why this striking - and strikingly beautiful - silent epic isn't better known than it is.

Fritz Lang's first noteworthy film is gorgeous to look at and highly imaginative.

Audience Reviews for Destiny (Der mude Tod) (The Weary Death) (Between Two Worlds)

A beautifully spooky and adventurous movie about death. It is sort of an anthology horror movie with three different stories of love and death told by the grim reaper. I really liked it, it's cool.

a wonderful gothic romance like something from grimm's fairy tales. in his autobiography buñuel wrote that this inspired him to make films. there's an homage to it in un chien andalou. it was one of alfred hitchcock's favorites and a big influence on the thief of baghdad (both versions) and murnau's faust among many, many others
