  1. FISCHER's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Un classique incontournable du cinéma allemand réalisé par deux metteurs en scène en devenir, un chef-opérateur et son assistant déjà remarquables ... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Ethan's rating of the film People on Sunday

    This is a beautiful film that brilliantly captures real life and showcases the emerging talents of great directors who would go on to have a thriving and successful career in Hollywood. This is filmmaking at its most natural.

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film People on Sunday

    And thus you spend your fleeting days.

  4. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film People on Sunday

    "'We are SMART cinephiles!'" http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/12/episode-82-cinema-masters-vol-xi.html

  5. Duncan Gray's rating of the film People on Sunday

    It's Germany in 1930, and neither Caligari nor Hitler are anywhere in sight. A beautiful, sun-dappled idyll that manages to effortlessly be so many things at once: a city symphony (less mechanical than Vertov), proto-neorealism (more cohesive than Rossellini), and proto-New Wave (more generous than Godard). The best moments of the film spill over with off-hand life and cinematic beauty. Essential.

  6. Drew Kelly's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Amazing how fresh this still is today!

  7. pepoire's rating of the film People on Sunday

    I feel like this might be one of those instances where a famous film owes more to the later-famous people who worked on it than to its own comparative merit as cinema of its time. Maybe I'm being ungenerous though, because I just find stories of women competing over a man (and the casual assumption that this is what naturally happens) to be incredibly boring. Honestly though, for 1930 this is just... a good film.

  8. Stevie's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Lyrical poetry. The film is overflowing with melancholy and sadness.

  9. C.I.E's rating of the film People on Sunday

    This film was done by amateurs but nevertheless caused a bustle. It represents pure creativity and vigour. Considering this film became extremely influential as the first independent film ever made, it is interesting in this aspect and maybe just extremely important to consider what is possible with very little when making films.

  10. PROKOSCH's rating of the film People on Sunday

    So excited that The Believer included the film in this month's film issue!!

  11. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film People on Sunday

    ★★★★ what happens on lazy Sundays, stays on lazy Sundays.

  12. Ryan Robinson's rating of the film People on Sunday

    A treasure. Light and breezy - but also inventive enough that even today it is fresh and stimulating. No surprise that so many future Hollywood icons (Billy Wilder! Robert Siodmak! Edward G. Ulmer!) were involved in this experiment. As Richard Brody put it, "the first mumble core film, seventy-five years ahead of it's time."

  13. Elayla's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Very beautiful scenes and actors. I liked how they used nonprofessionals, everyday ordinary people to describe the everyday ordinary 1930's Berlin.

  14. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Like behind the scenes documentary of The Crowd v. Lonesome.

  15. Juurakkotukka's rating of the film People on Sunday

    The most beautiful film I have ever seen! http://youtu.be/ejTDsFrausg

  16. Daniella's rating of the film People on Sunday

    It's because of films like this one I have a passion for cinema.

  17. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film People on Sunday

    for 1929/1930 it should have been sounded! boring/uninteresting movie anyway. didn't see the good parts the other user saw in this pointless thing (for 1910 ok, but not 30!)

  18. filmluvr81's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Well, Annie sure missed out on a fun day! :)

  19. AntioneOscar69's rating of the film People on Sunday

    Stunning groundbreaking film; precursor to French New Wave and Neorealism, the freewheeling style also anticipates such future classics as A Hard Day's Night and Wings of Desire, and in its sexual subplot it also is a precursor to Knife In The Water. It's a romantic, entertaining, inventive, and still fresh film in its own right, lovingly restored on Criterion Blu_Ray

  20. Weaving Wave's rating of the film People on Sunday

    I am tempted to make a special list for this film - amazing how it's both so full of its time and so modern in its feel.

  21. Ryan Estabrooks's rating of the film People on Sunday

    I was really surprised by this film! It came across almost like a Cassavetes film made in the silent era. Part documentary, part fiction, it really makes it seem like real life unfolding. The story is told through flirting, glances, jealous anger and through other, almost purely physical means.

  22. HobartLazaro's rating of the film People on Sunday

    like a mentos tv commercial

  23. Kevin van Lough's rating of the film People on Sunday

    This is a really excellent film, way ahead of its time. More people should see it! A very strong early Truffaut feel.
