  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Variety

    Incontestable chef-d'oeuvre du cinéma muet allemand qui enthousiasma critiques et spectateurs de l'époque, par la nouveauté de son langage cinématographique... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Variety

  3. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Variety

    Versatile film, splendid camerawork - beware of the Tiger Lillies' score!

  4. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Variety

    I hit upon my ultrapersonal epitome of a popcorn film: intense, outrageously skilled to the point where spoilt ophthalmic brats can pillage savorous morsels from any random sector of the film's regale: pink firework drops, trapeze shots below the planetarium-y 'star-lit' circus roof, fluttering curtains vs. stomach butterflies, tabletop boogie, the Tiger Lillies like Jacquemarts striking the tension waves & spindrift

  5. El Biffo's rating of the film Variety

    Imagine if Fassbinder's Franz Biberkopf was in a silent Tod Browning film about a bitter love triangle in the circus, that's what this picture is like. Starring Emil Jannings, impeccable restoration by Murnau Foundation 2015.

  6. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Variety

    Truly amazing. The viennese restoration is stunning; the music score by The tiger lillies is weird but interesting. Sure, it basically makes the charachters speak (for real) and it's somewhat annoying. Still, great job.

  7. José Neves's rating of the film Variety

    Cinematography by Karl Freund.

  8. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Variety

    Ultraformalist protonoir. If all the rest of the films disappeared (god forbid) we'd have inspiration enough in this one to start rebuilding.
