Critic Reviews for Destiny (Der müde Tod)
Technique, sensibility, cinematic vision, and story all come together in this epic drama of love, death, myth, and sacrifice, a mix of supernatural drama and mythic parable produced in the shadow of World War I.
Death has been played many times, from Bergman's "The Seventh Seal (1952)" to "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey (1991)" and countless others, but never as sympathetic as in "Destiny."
This beautiful 2K restoration...features the original intertitles while simulating the color tinting and toning of the original not seen since the 1920's...Unveiled at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival, Kino Lorber's release is a real treat for cinephiles.
Restored and revived, 1921's 'Destiny' perfectly illustrates the glories of Weimar cinema.
Audience Reviews for Destiny (Der müde Tod)
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 well told story with great effects, especially for that time. I'm a big fan of Fritz Lang and have enjoyed M and Metropolis and I thoroughly enjoyes this well crafter story as well.This is a movie I wouldn't mind watching again.
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
