Menschen untereinander & Unter der Laterne

Menschen untereinander & Unter der Laterne

Edition Filmmuseum 83

This double-DVD presents two films by Gerhard Lamprecht, sketching social panoramas of late 1920s Berlin. Menschen untereinander delineates the social microcosm of a tenement building; the tenants represent a cross-section of poverty, corruption and compassion. In Unter der Laterne, the girl Else begins to follow the wrong path after an altercation with her father. The high life turns out to be the first step in a downward spiral.
