You and Me is a decent film. It is about a department-store owner who hires ex-convicts in order to give them a second chance at life. Sylvia Sidney and George Raft give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Fritz Lang did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the romance.
Lang's 3rd American film an odd but mostly successful mix of genres--A heck of a lot of fun!!
good noir from director fritz lang
It's pretty great. An eclectic Bretchian film and part musical. It's often stunning visually.
Odd mix of comedy, crime drama, and social message picture from Fritz Lang (complete with songs by Kurt Weill), starring George Raft as an ex-con going straight (banking on his gangster image) and Silvia Sydney as his love interest with a secret. The film has a soft spot for lovably oddball ex-criminals arguing that society should give them a chance (even while presenting them as one step away from pulling their next job) but it is a bit flat-footed in the plot department. Too many of the actions here seem wrong-headed or out-of-step for these characters (as built up). Nevertheless, Lang presents it all with style.
Lang's early American films are some of the best of his career, and this strange meld of romantic comedy, crime, Brechtian musical, and noirish expressionism (for Adolph Zukor and Paramount) is one of his most interesting projects.
In my opinion, little more needs to be said than "Fritz Lang Musical" but this is a great film, stylistically and musically bizarre in an amazing way. And, despite the fact it's always labeled a noir, it's really a comedy.
Good performances elevate a modest script.
