Lubitsch in Berlin Box Set (Masters of Cinema)

Lubitsch in Berlin Box Set (Masters of Cinema)
£15.99  

Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around the Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in its tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman. This set collects six recently restored works from the silent phase of Lubitschs career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique. Ich Mchte Kein Mann Sein (1918)One of the first collaborations between Lubitsch and the exuberant Ossi Oswalda, Ich mchte kein Mann sein [I Wouldnt Like to Be a Man] is a concise sketch of society life in three acts. When Ossis uncle goes away on a business trip, a new guardian steps in to tame the distractable niece. But Ossi finds a way out of the house and into a grand ball... by way of a brazen cross-dressing scheme - and triggers what is perhaps Lubitschs most twisted finale. Die Puppe (1919) Four amusing acts from a toy-chest - so reads the opening title of the comic masterpiece Die Puppe. [The Doll.] adapted by Lubitsch and co-scenarist Hanns Krly from a libretto by A. M. Wilner (based in turn on a tale from E. T. A. Hoffmann). Ossi Oswalda stars in a double-role as both the mischievous daughter, and automatonic creation, of a wildly coiffed dollmaker . When a wealthy baron decides the time has come for his prudish nephew to take a wife, an uproariously ribald plot unwinds into what is perhaps the worlds first-ever sex-doll comedy. Die Austernprinzessin (1919)As Die Austernprinzessin. [The Oyster Princess.], Ossi Oswalda makes another turn as a plutocrats rambunctious daughter - now the heiress of a global oyster empire, devoting her wiles once again to the service of manipulation. A comic high-point in the masters oeuvre, Die Austernprinzessin. showcases the trademarks of the Lubitsch Touch and its ten-fingered dexterity, resulting in a film that is simultaneously clever, concise, and risqu. Sumurun (1920)By turns melodramatic and grotesquely comic, Sumurun brings together performances by star-players Paul Wegener (Der Golem.), Pola Negri, Harry Liedtke, and Ernst Lubitsch himself (in the role of an ultra-pathetic hunchbacked minstrel) for this ensemble tale pulled from the milieu of The Arabian Nights. Featuring hundreds of extras milling through open-air set-pieces and dusky harem-chambers alike, Sumurun demonstrates Lubitschs ability to transfigure rote romance into vibrant pageant. Anna Boleyn (1920)Emil Jannings plays King Henry VIII in the story of Anne Boleyns movement from the outskirts of the court, to the royal boudoir, and off to the chopping-block. Suffused with an atmosphere of entrapment that would not be out of place in later films by Fritz Lang, and prefiguring the stately contretemps in John Fords Mary of Scotland, Anna Boleyn proceeds with a deathward momentum unique in Lubitschs oeuvre. Die Bergkatze (1921)Set in one of Lubitschs hallmark mythical kingdoms, Die Bergkatze [The Mountain-Lion / The Wildcat] finds Lubitsch in exuberantly expressionistic mode, employing a host of optical masks to create perhaps the most visually audacious comic spectacle of his career. Pola Negri plays the daughter of a band of thieves; seduction of army commander (and audience) ensues. Lubitschs personal favourite work of all his German films, Die Bergkatze represents a peak in both Lubitschs silent oeuvre and the silent cinema as a whole. Special Features: Six Features Across Five Discs A Sixth Disc Containing Robert Fischers 2006 Feature-Length Documentary Ernst Lubitsch in Berlin: From Schnhauser Allee to Hollywood Exclusive Concertina Score for Die Puppe Liner Notes for all Six Features by Film-Writers David Cairns, Anna Thorngate, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
