Format: DVD
Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (1927), Berlin of 1927 before it was flattened and rebuilt. If you remember this you are in trouble.

This film is a beautifully designed black & white film that starts out with a steam engine train ride. We then travel through the city and through the different hours of the day until evening when we must leave. Try to spot the main streets and buildings. It is like taking a day trip into history.

Some of the details cover the technology of the day; we see overhead trains and street trolleys. Many of the factory machines are belt driven. Some of the technology has survived till today as the cappuccino machine.

We also get a glimpse of the different social strata and what people do throughout the day from waking up to school or secretarial work. Then it is off to lunch and afternoon activates.

In the evening we can go to the movies and watch Tom Mix. Or there are chorus lines and legitimate theater. Later we can stop off at the local bar or nightclub fro a drink and some dancing.

The music score is by Timothy Brock. The same person that wrote the score for "Liebe der Jeanne Ney, Die" (1927)

After watching the movie you need to look at the book "Lost Berlin" by Susanne Everett

The Love of Jeanne Ney
Lost Berlin
