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)

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!)

I was rather impressed with how progressive this movie was considering it was made in 1919. Sadly, parts of the movie did not age well, such as the bizarre blocking during the fist fight and the static camera work. Still, the characters were complex and compelling, and I was transfixed: I had to know what happened next. All in all, surprisingly enjoyable.
