  • General info
  • Available formats
In the sinister mystery 'Schloß Vogelöd', terrible secrets from the past threaten a group of aristocrats' gathering at a country manor. In the delirious 'Phantom', an aspiring poet's chance encounter with a beautiful woman leads into obsession and deception. The delightful 'Die Finanzen des Großherzogs' sees a rakish-but-impoverished duke setting out to rebuild his fortune via blissfully comic high adventure on the Mediterranean coast. In 'Der Letzte Mann', one of the undisputed masterpieces of the silent era, Emil Jannings gives an overwhelming performance as a hotel porter with dreams of a higher station in life, and was a stylistic breakthrough for both Murnau and cinema in general.
Finally, the slyly satiric 'Tartuffe' features Jannings as Molière's iconic creation in a morality tale film-within-a-film as only Murnau could conceive.
