Movie Info

Thought to have been lost for decades, German filmmaker Richard Oswald's 1919 picture Different From the Others was eventually discovered to have survived the Nazi era. The films stars Conrad Veidt of Casablanca and centers on the oppression brought upon Germany's homosexual men as a result of the penal code's controversial Paragraph 175. The silent film also stars Leo Connard and Ilse Von Tasso-Lind. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Notable for its surprisingly modern attitude toward homosexuality.

The film is as much a political entreaty as it is a dispassionate educational discourse.

Audience Reviews for Anders als die Andern (Different from the Others)

It's a shame that only fragments - a mere third! - of this film have survived, not only because it seems like it would've been a good film, but also because this film has probably the first homosexual character ever written for cinema (Paul Körner played by the wonderful Conrad Veidt).

I am not going to say that this was a most entertaining movie, it was not. I did find it VERY enlightening.

Wow. One of the first films to ever address homosexuality - and of course Magnes Hirschfeld is involved (my favorite gay, Jewish, socialist sexologist!)
