I wasn't very interested in the story but the visuals were ahead of its time without a doubt.

DIE FINANZEN DES GROSSHERZOGS is a great film with a big, strange visual scope. It all plays rather effortlessly, but the underlying ideas are vast. Money, politics, the ethics of grace under pressure, and many mysterious, immense compositions.
not so splendid, a 6/10

An often overlooked film. Alfred Abel shines, and the cinematography of Karl Freund is terrific. The audio commentary is the true gem of this dvd.
