"German expressionist cinema was at its height in the 1920s, and few films embodied the movement as much as Warning Shadows ... a mysterious traveler and illusionist who performs shadow puppetry arrives to provide some entertainment at an otherwise routine dinner party. The host of the party is already mad with jealousy over the presence of his wife's four suitors, but when the puppet show begins, passions overtake reason and reality is not what it appears to be. Shadows, reflections and silhouettes are the dominant imagery ..."--Container notes

The Ancient Law( Visual )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An important piece of German-Jewish cinematic history, contrasting the closed world of an Eastern European shtetl with the liberal mores of 1860's Vienna. With its historically authentic set design and ensemble of prominent actors, THE ANCIENT LAW is an outstanding example of the creativity of Jewish filmmakers in 1920s Germany. In the film, Baruch (Ernst Deutsch), the son of a rabbi, becomes fascinated by the theater. Against his father's wishes, Baruch leaves home and finds his way to Vienna, where an archduchess at the imperial court (Henny Porten) falls in love with him. She becomes his patroness, facilitating his successful career as a classical actor. But Baruch continues to long for home, and must find a way to reconcile his religious heritage with his love of secular literature. The movie paints a complex portrait of the tension between tradition and modernity
