'bout time for me to get going on this. Funny, Germany was the first country with a cinema that I really made an effort to explore, but I just haven't kept up, and I'm sure not doing well with this challenge. Well, a few is better than none.

Started off with a Lubitsch silent comedy 3fer:

1. Das fidele Gefängnis / The Merry Jail (1917)
2. Meyer aus Berlin (1919)
3. Die Bergkatze / The Wildcat (1921)

The first of these is a solid working out of a common theme to both Lubitsch and comedy generally - the spouse spying on her/his partner, suspicious of the other having an affair and/or being a wastrel, drinking, etc. In this case it's the wife (let's face it, it's usually the wife, we men are scum) trying to catch her husband, who is supposed to go to jail for a day for drunk and disorderly behavior, at a party. She disguises herself, and gets her husband to flirt with her - thinking she's another woman. There are also a couple of other plots going on involving various flirtations and indiscretions, and all the men are pretty much drunks, including jailer Emil Jannings. There's nothing altogether remarkable here but it's typical Lubitsch panache and lots of fun and plot to be had in 48 minutes.

Meyer is rather problematic, at least to this viewer seen through the prism of Jewish stereotypes and comedy over the past century. I'm certainly not forgetting that Lubitsch - also the star of this film, another marriage farce - was Jewish, or that attitudes about stereotypes and humor have both changed considerably since his time, but his character of Meyer comes across as one of the most over-the-top ingratiating Jewish merchant types I've ever seen on film. I don't know if I'd call it "offensive", exactly - Meyer isn''t a bad guy, isn't greedy or thieving or overtly dishonest, but I definitely found the constant mugging and such grating. The plot of the main character lying to his wife about being sick, going off to the mountains for adventure isn't exactly novel or interesting either, though there are occasional fun bits and the ending a little risque for the time. Meh, not terrible but definitely the worst of the 20-odd films from the director I've seen. Also, where is Ossi Oswalda who is supposedly in this?

Thankfully Die Bergkatze shows the director at or near his early peak, helped immeasurably by Pola Negri in the title role. I think this is the first Negri film I've seen - she plays "Rischka" (RBG, I know where you original username comes from now), daughter of the leader of a group of bandits that harass a military outpost in the mountains, who falls in love with the new Lieutenant who comes to the fort. This is a chaotic, crazy farce made all the more fun by it's use of wild costumes and even wilder sets and camerawork - the first third of the film or so is almost entirely shot with sequences masked into shapes ranging from circles to thin rectangles to snake-like squiggles. The sets aren't precisely "expressionist" but they seem to come from that space, mixed with something more akin to what we see later in films like the Dr. Seuss-written 5000 Fingers of Dr. T - semi-surrealistic children's fantasies, I guess you could call them. But it is the wild and crazy Rischka who makes the strongest impression - strong indeed even decades later, given than Helena Bonham Carter seems to have borrowed her whole early look from Negri's ragged gypsy wildcat wardrobe and hair. I'm fairly sure I'd put Die Puppe as Lubitsch's greatest German film but this is certainly not far off that very high mark. Just wonderful.

non-comedy Lubitsch:

4. Sumurun (1920)

Well, actually it does have plenty of humor - it's a forerunner in some ways of some of the less-serious Hollywood Arabian Nights and other forms of exotica of the 30s-50s. This is a love quadrangle - pentagle? I'm not sure, it got to be a bit much, of a slave girl dancer in love with a merchant, the sheikh who buys the slave girl for himself abandoning his former favorite (the title character) for the new blood, a hunchback also in love with the dancer, and plenty of other complications. It's all a bit messy and doesn't add up to a coherent whole but it looks great - typically lavish Lubitsch style for the time, not really "middle eastern" but exotic at any rate, and we've got Pola Negri again as the dancer, the director as the hunchback, and Jenny Hasselqvist makes a rather mysterious, brooding Sumurun. Not one of Lubitsch's best I think but interesting, and there are a few good action/chase sequences to boot along with all the romance.

5. Von morgens bis mitternachts / From Morn to Midnight (Karl Heinz Martin, 1920)

Wildly inventive over-the-top expressionist crime-melodrama about a bank cashier who despairs of his dull life, and when captured by the spell of a beautiful woman dripping with jewels, decides to change his course by stealing a bunch of money and moving away, where of course destiny does not meet him on the terms he had hoped for. There was really too much here for me to get in one viewing - not that the plot is so complex, but the craziness of the sets and photography, equaled only by Caligari perhaps, make actually watching and digesting all that's going on a challenge - one thing I didn't really comprehend until near the end for example was that the same actress (Roma Bahn) was playing several roles, because the baroque nature of the visuals in some way kept me from paying as close attention to human details as I should have. And maybe I was too tired; though this is certainly a dream-like film in many respects, I'm fairly sure if would profit most by being seen when quite awake.

6. Der Schatz im Silbersee / The Treasure of the Silver Lake (Harald Reinl, 1962)

I think this is my first German western - apart from some Eurowestern coproductions anyway - and it was a good one to start out with. Really beautifully filmed with a lot of great shot compositions entirely on location in Croatia, this is a mountain-set western that does feel rather different from American westerns in that it's all quite green, no hint of desert or for that matter snow - all quite verdant; but in terms of narrative, acting and music it's much more like the traditional American style than most of the Italian westerns of the 60s would be: the heroes are really virtuous men, the bad guys are bad but have some intelligence or honor, the violence is less explicit, the sex nonexistent. It feels in many ways too like a lot of TV westerns of the time - our de facto protagonists, Old Shatterhand and Winnetou, are just passing through an area and come on people who need their help, and proceed to lead a small group of men (and one woman, of course) in taking revenge on the large number of bandits who murdered a stagecoach full of people - and both good guys and bad guys are trying to put together a map to lead them to the legendary treasure of the title. Nothing extraordinary here in the acting/character area, though I quite liked Herbert Lom as the main bad guy (and I think he may have dubbed his own voice in the German language version I saw), and Lex Barker is certainly impressive in the buckskin-clad Shatterhand role - seems very much a Gary Cooper or Randolph Scott type. But Reinl's feel for landscape and the overall narrative drive are quite solid and I certainly look forward to the rest of the Winnetou/Shatterhand films.

7. Harakiri (Fritz Lang, 1919)

Apart from alternate-language versions of the second Mabuse film and M, and the re-edited one film version of the Indian diptych, this was the last Lang film I had left to see. Lang was the first old dead director I really got interested in, way back in the 80s, so it's been a long journey; I could have watched this a while ago but as it happened I just never got around to it, and now with this challenge and having the Kino silent box set on BD, why not? Well, I knew I wasn't going to be in for an exciting finish to Project Fritz Lang, so I can't say I was toooo disappointed, but this German rendition of the Madame Butterfly story is pretty dull stuff all in all. Nothing really stands out - there's a priest character, and the Cho-Cho-San character (her called O-Take-San) is supposed to become a Buddhist priestess before she ends up as a geisha, and the priest's nastiness is really responsible for the way the story turns out as much as the European husband's thoughtlessness; I don't think that's in the opera though perhaps it's in some other version of the story - but it doesn't really make things more interesting. It just doesn't seem to have a lot of life and the acting feels quite muted, though the set design is rather nice if not really particularly accurate to Japanese culture. A curio for Lang completists or those interested in the source material, that's about it.

Suffering from commitment issues, this German film begins with the protagonist rejecting a morning coffee from a woman he just slept with, and as fate would have it, he spends the rest of the day unable to get a coffee for one reason or another, running into demons from his past along the way. While this alone is fresh material for a comedy and the film gets some dark laughs from his attempts to take back the change he just gave a homeless man etc., there is just as much character drama and the film looks great in stark and black and white.

This Ernst Lubitsch comedy is very visually arresting with most of the shots framed in shapes other than circles and rectangles; some shots look like kissing lips, others look like jagged lines and some even have borders like gaping jaws. The set design is magnificent too with ostentatious winding staircases, giant rocking horses and crazily large doors. Alas, amidst all this the central romance is pretty lifeless and the comedy does not always work (most gags involving mad scurrying) but there are amusing moments here - especially whenever Victor Janson is on screen

Thanks for hosting this challenge Klaus.

1:So Ended a Great Love (1934) 7

Image

Done in the dresses of the Wiener Film genre, the screenplay by co-writer/(with Walter Reisch) director Karl Hartl sliders underhanded comments of the problems taking place, via the references to the “Clouds of war on the horizon” and the diplomatic attempts to get Austria and France to have an arm in arm relationship to stop a war from breaking out. Holding back from going too political, the Hartl and Reisch stir up sweet Wiener Film wish fulfilment, blossoming star-crossed love between Louise and Franz.

Whilst the rough edges of the picture quality have taken some of the shine off,Hartl & cinematographer Franz Planer refined stylisation still sparkles, shimmering in the grand palace of Louise, an eye-catching use of water for the outpouring of love between Frantz/ Louise, and overlapping images on the cross Louise must bare. Joining up in front of the camera after working together on Maskerade (1934) Willi Forst and Paula Wessely give exquisite performances as Franz and Louise, as the flamboyant passions Forst gives Franz are neatly tied by the restrained love Wessely holds Louise with,when the couple experience the end of a great love.

Monica Bleibtreu and Hannah Herzsprung are excellent as the two female protagonists here, each wanting something else out of their time together, while bonded by an appreciation of music. The film runs a little long at close to two hours with lesbianism, Nazism and abusive parent subplots in the mix; none of which are really fleshed out in much depth. Still, the solid performances and voyeuristic cinematography keeps things chugging along. There is also a well written subplot involving a prison guard who becomes envious of the young prisoner's talent.

The lack of colour here nicely helps to convey something sinister in the air, but this is really not a film for all tastes. The solution to the mystery is obvious from early on and I found it frustrating waiting over two hours for the protagonist to reach the same conclusion. The violent acts are also few and far between; this is not a small town rocked by paranoia or suspicion since everything happens over so many months with many weeks without incident. I like what Haneke is going for from an allegorical perspective here, but this dragged on and on.

This would go on the back of a VolkswagenShow

2. Er is wieder da / Look Who's Back (2015)

5. Die Blechtrommel / The Tin Drum (1979)
6. Das fidele Gefängnis / The Merry Jail (1917)
7. Faust (1926)

Stunning visuals and a really entertaining watch - but I've never been a fan of the story, so it didn't grip me all that much.

There is certainly something interesting going on here as the husband (played with relish by Werner Krauss) is too distracted to notice that his wife (an equally well cast Jenny Jugo) is being romanced by others, but this single joke is pretty much all supporting the film in the humour department throughout. There are certainly some nice touches - most notably how crazed some of the title cards become as Krauss shouts at Jugo, but not quite enough to support a full feature length film. The conclusion feels a little too rushed too.

As the protagonist sarcastically narrates his ordeals while comatose in hospital, this German comedy gets off to a quirky mock-Sunset Blvd start but things go downhill as he then has to sneak out of his mother's funeral (falling into her grave to fake a heart attack), the Shiva and other religious services to participate in a billiards tournament. On the one hand, the film wants us to cheer on his clever methods of sneaking away, however, it is so underhanded that it is hard to support it. There is also a weird running gag involving copulating cousins.

Also known as the original version of The Sound of Music, this earlier adaptation of Maria von Trapp's autobiographical book stars Ruth Leuwerik as the singing nun who inspires the kids in her care to appreciate music. There are some strong scenes early on as Leuwerik asserts herself and insists on the children having fun. The kids themselves though lack personality and are very interchangeable. The romance between Leuwerik and the Baron also comes out of nowhere with limited chemistry. This is a sweet film, but little more.
