Fabian: Going to the Dogs Photos

Movie Info

Berlin, 1931. Jakob Fabian works in the advertising department of a cigarette factory during the day and drifts through bars, brothels and artist studios with his wealthy friend Labude at night. When Fabian gets to know the self-confident Cornelia, he manages to shed his pessimistic attitude for a brief moment. He falls in love. But then he too falls victim to the great wave of layoffs, while Cornelia makes a career as an actress thanks to her boss and admirer. An arrangement that Fabian finds difficult to come to terms with. But it's not just his world that is falling apart...

Critic Reviews for Fabian: Going to the Dogs

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5)

  • A saving grace through it all is Schilling and Rosendahl, anchoring the emotional pull with projections of warmth and sincerity so appealing that Fabian's initial cynicism is saved from feeling off-putting.

  • Graf has spent most of his long career as a director of TV series and movies, and much of the staging lacks great originality. But this is made up for, in part, by the striking way the story of Jakob and his friends is told...

    March 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Graf gives this familiar subject matter a briskly involving new spin in Fabian - Going to the Dogs.

    March 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • If Kästner's book was a prescient foreshadowing of the moral collapse that led to the Second World War, Graf's adaptation puts a timeless spin on the material and makes it feel as urgently relevant as ever.

    March 12, 2021 | Full Review…
  • An ambitious remounting of Kastner's text, it's an uneasy calm before a wrathful storm textured curiously so as to blur the line between a past which was never rightly put to rest and the present which seems to be mirroring it.
