Movie Info

Post-World War I German cinema offered some strikingly stylized films, such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and The Golem. This stark tragedy, told with practically no subtitles, and with the characters often pantomiming instead of speaking to each other, could fit into the same category as the first two films, except it's nowhere near as successful creatively. The daughter (Edith Poska) of a track-walker (Werner Kraus) is raped by the section inspector. The girl's mother is so ashamed of her fate that she wanders into a storm and perishes. The track-walker finds his wife's body and prepares to bury her. The girl breaks down and tells her father what has happened. In a fit of anger he chokes the inspector to death, and then hands himself over to the authorities. Carl Mayer, who wrote Caligari, was also the author of this story. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovimore
