Lubitsch In Berlin (Masters Of Cinema)
  • Description

    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 tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman.

    This set collects six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch s career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present these six works by Ernst Lubitsch for the first time ever on Blu-ray.

What would Lubitsch do?

Masters of Cinema has put together an excellent collection of films by a genius filmmaker. His comedies are funny without any contrived jokes, his dreams are vivid and his historical movies are filled with detail and sense for what he´s doing. Now onder Billy Wilder for one always asked himself when not 100% sure what to do, What would Lubitsch Do? I kind of agree with Mr Friedkin " Sorcerer" "The Exorcist" and "The French Connection" that the best cinema was made during the silent era (although they are not silent as there is music, just no talking. Like Ossi Oswalda in I don´t want to be a man, she´d be a superstar today as she´s got presence and is so full of life. And yes you can tell Lubitsch was a perfectionist. These are som of te movies from late 190 and early 1920 that has survived. Meticously restored without losing to much of their authenticity. And there is a booklet with writing on each film by various writers. A must have for any serious film lover.
