Audience Reviews for Menschen am Sonntag (People on Sunday)

  • Nov 12, 2011
    a remarkable documentary/experimental late silent film made in weimar era berlin by future hollywood stars robert and curt siodmak, edgar g ulmer, billy wilder and fred zinnemann, among others. no complete copy has survived so this is a recreation from various sources, as complete as possible. and it is a wonderful time capsule, using non professional actors on their weekends going about their leisure activities, with cityscapes, beach scenes and domestic life, so naturalistic and modern, whose influence on italian neorealism and the nouvelle vague can't be denied. also incredibly poignant, with the nazis' rise to power and the holocaust looming, causing these young filmmakers to flee their homes, one can't help but wonder what became of these carefree young people on sunday...

    Is there a plot? Barely. Any real actors in the film or sets? Nope. Yet this is one of the best representations of people doing what they want with their weekends, which at the time was a new trend. Trying to capture the most honest and accurate representation of random people and how they spend their time and interact is captured in this film more than any other! A movie thought absurd and literally laughed at during it's inception and process of being made, but was embraced by critics and audiences instantly when it was released. The men involved would all go on to Hollywood and make international names for themselves and it can be said that this was their ticket in. Recommended for fans of silent films!

    Just plain interesting and enjoyable. On it's own, as a picture of Berlin in the late 20s to 30s, it's so fascinating. But if this film tells you anything: in Berlin at this time all women are pretty and all men are total jerks.
