From silent to talking cinema - M (1931)

GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

The city of Berlin looks for a child murderer.

We are excited to announce the third edition of Sounds of Silence festival for silent films and live music - coming this February (24th-26th). For this special occasion our regular film program will be dedicated to talking film by directors who are mostly identified with silent cinema - Fritz Lang, Charlie Chaplin and Carl Dreyer. 

M (Fritz Lang, 1931)
When Jean-Luc Godard asked Fritz Lang to name his greatest film, the one most likely to last, Lang did not hesitate. “M,” he said. Made in 1931, near the end of the Weimar Republic, M is Lang’s brilliant link between silent film and talkies, and between German Expressionism and what would eventually be called Film Noir. It tells the story of a Berlin society caught up in hysteria over a series of child murders, and of the massive mobilization — by police and criminals alike — to catch the killer (Peter Lorre in a genius acting performance).

- In German with English subtitles.
