Darum geht's

The story of a retired sailor who has taken a job as a janitor in a lunatic asylum to look after his insane wife, locked away after attempting to drown their child. A synopsis of the plot can’t begin to explain the power of the film, nor the audacity of its vision.

Eine Seite des Wahnsinns Regie Teinosuke Kinugasa
When’s the last time you were surprised by a silent film? Impressed, dazzled, yes, but genuinely surprised? You’d think by 2017, with all the silent-era history scholarship behind us, that authentic, mutant-DNA “Holy Crap” moments would be rare on the ground, and, of course, they are. But there’s no amount of buckling up that can prepare a well-versed silent cinephile for the utter unheralded weirdness of Teinosuke Kinugasa’s A Page of Madness (Kurutta Ichipeiji).

A Page of Madness has historically been overshadowed by the avant-garde sensations of Un Chien Andalou, The Passion of Joan of Arc, and Sergei Eisenstein—no doubt in part because it was lost until 1971—but it belongs in that rarified company… Few films have so consciously crafted a purely cinematic language, eschewing title cards and denoting hallucination and memory purely through distorted point of view shots and editing patterns.

…A madhouse riot of a movie. Traumatic and nauseating, it’s easily the most horrifying movie made during the Silent Era, a weird and queasy dance of death directed by former female impersonator/future Oscar and Palme d’Or winner Teinosuke Kinugasa and written by future Nobel laureate Yasunari Kawabata.
