1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gert Scobel introduces, in this program to honor Brecht, the musical social satire set in Victorian London, in which both government and underworld are portrayed as amoral and polluted by economic and political chaos.

L'Opera de quat' sous : Die 3 groschenoper by Kurt Weill( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early years of the sound era film producers often made films in different language versions, using the same sets but different casts. Pabst's twin versions of The threepenny opera shot in German and French make absorbing viewing. Set in a shadowy, stylised and dreamlike Victorian London, the story of Mack the Knife and Polly Peachum is timeless and the combination of Brecht's satire and Weill's music is as fresh as ever

Zur Chronik von Grieshuus( Visual )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Über dem trutzigen Herrensitz der Familie Grieshuus ziehen im 17. Jahrhundert dunkle Wolken auf. Der Lieblingssohn will eine einfache Jägerstochter heiraten, weshalb ihn das Oberhaupt schweren Herzens enterbt, will er das edle Haus doch eigentlich nicht dem habgierigen Zwillingssohn überantworten. Als der verbitterte Hausherr vor Gram stirbt, entbrennt ein Unglück und Tod bringender Kampf ums Erbe, der auch in der Nachfolgegeneration keinen Abschluss findet. Eindrucksvolles Ausstattungsdrama, das inszenatorisch wie darstellerisch exemplarisch das hohe Niveau des Unterhaltungsfilms während der Weimarer Republik aufzeigt. In der emotionalen Wucht an Fritz Langs "Nibelungen" erinnernd, wird die Novelle von Theodor Fontane auf sein blutiges Intrigen- und Rachespiel fokussiert und mahnt im Stil einer griechischen Tragödie den Kampf um das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung (in der Liebe) an. Der Film wurde 2005 restauriert und 2014 mit der restaurierten Originalfilmmusik von Gottfried Huppertz gekoppelt. [film-dienst.de]

Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's The threepenny opera( Visual )

2 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reconstructed in the sixties- years after the original negative was destroyed by the Nazis- G.W. Pabst's Threepenny opera remains a deliciously dark film adaptation of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's brillant musical. A master of atmosphere, Pabst combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of 'respectable' society. Foggy sets by Andre Andreiev and Fritz Arno Wagner's stunning cinematography pull us down into the seedy underworld of 1890's London. There a dashing thief called 'Mack the Knife' gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries the daughter of Soho's 'Beggar King.' When the outraged King sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life."--Box
Die Gruft mit dem Rätselschloß( Visual )

3 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Krimi über Intrigen und Fehden um den Besitz eines großen Schatzes in einem raffiniert gesicherten Safe. - Mr. Kent verlor einst durch die Bande des skrupellosen Spielhöllenbesitzers Real Vermögen und Ansehen. Jetzt - nach Kents Tod - will Real Kents Tochter Kathleen aus Reue seine ergaunerten Reichtümer vermachen. Diese verbirgt er in einer für Unwissende nicht zu öffnenden Gruft. Als Kathleen Kent mit dem Juristen Ferry Westlake in London eintrifft, wird sie von Reals ehemaligem Croupier Connor und dessen Bande entführt, da auch sie sich von Real hintergangen fühlen und ebenfalls in den Besitz der Reichtümer kommen wollen. Jimmy Flinn - ebenfalls ein ehemaliger Mitarbeiter Reals - möchte Kathleen befreien, doch Inspektor Angel misstraut ihm... (Jan-Eric Loebe) Der Film plätschert weitgehend spannungs- und einfallsarm ohne dramaturgische Höhepunkte vor sich hin. Die Handlung ist überladen mit albernem Klamauk (Westlake rechnet seinem Koffer dessen Gefängnisstrafe vor) und dümmlichen Effekten (die "Gruft" und die "Todesfallen") und kommt trotz guter Ansätze nicht recht in Fahrt. Hätte man es doch nur bei einem Safe belassen. Das Betonmonstrum mit blinkenden Lampen und Geräuschkulisse macht keinen Sinn, außer dass es dem Zuschauer bald gehörig auf die Nerven fällt. Nach zwei sehr guten Arbeiten fällt Gottliebs Inszenierung hier recht uninspiriert und nachlässig aus; hätte man ihm keine Drehbuchmitarbeit zugestanden, wäre es möglicherweise nicht so schlimm gekommen.
