Der Müde Tod (Destiny) Rated PG

Der Müde Tod (Destiny)

Dir. Fritz Lang. Germany, 1921. 1h 38m. Starring Lil Dagover, Walter Janssen, Bernhard Goetzke, Hans Sternberg, Carl Rückert, Max Adalbert.

Digital restoration of Fritz Lang’s groundbreaking allegorical fantasy in which a young woman confronts the personification of Death, in an effort to save the life of her fiancé. Rich in expressionist imagery, it has often been overlooked amongst Lang’s early work, but has been hugely influential on directors such as Alfred Hitchcock.

’It is bizarre and captivating, an eerie dream of longing and fear.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

’Even before he was punching out canonical classics, Fritz Lang's genius was supremely evident.’ ★★★★★ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
