If you didn’t think Germans were weird enough: Watch a German expressionist film like this one.
A strange doctor comes to a small German fairground with a strange exhibit. After a series of mysterious murders, one man chooses to find the truth.
Very interesting from a physical aspect, which is typical for the style. Also, the actors faces are greatly exaggerated, adding to the emotion.
Awesome set pieces that add to the creepy feeling present in the other areas of the film. A good shooting style for the film, if a bit one-dimensional.
The soundtrack syncs perfectly with the on-screen action, and adds to the emotional content.
I couldn’t quite get over the subtitles. I understand that they are meant to accentuate the words and their meaning, but they are a headache to read after a while.
A good art film and a must for anyone studying the crafts of film, acting, or theatre.
