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

Die 3 groschenoper : the 3 penny opera( Visual )

1 edition published in 1931 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With a palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema."--Container

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]
