“The movie remains one of the most insightful depictions of the elemental incongruity between man’s nature and woman’s.” Boston Globe
Charismatic showgirl Lulu, seductively played by the stunning Louise Brooks, is the bobbed bad-girl of German silent film, enticing countless suitors. Her sexual self-determination and romantic trysts, however, lead to the tragedy and eventual downfall of all who become close to her.
With live piano accompaniment by Michael Mortilla
(Georg Wilhelm Pabst, 1929, 110 min.)
