When I speak of my love for silent cinema, this is the type of film I mean, not cheap slapstick. Emotionally and historically complex, and fabulous visually. Contemporary cinema (talkies) in no way surpasses this silent gem, directed by the great Georg Wilhelm Pabst. Shot on location in 1920's Paris.
