Der letzte Mann (The Last Laugh)
Dir. F.W. Murnau - Germany - 1924 - 77 Min

New soundtrack performed live by:
Simone Giacomini & Thomas Myrmel

The life of an aging doorman is shattered when he is relieved of the duties and uniform which had been the foundation of his happiness and pride. Through Emil Jannings extraordinary performance, Der Letzte Mann becomes more than the plight of a single doorman, but a mournful dramatization of the frustration and anguish of the universal working class and one of the most touching achievements in the history of German expressionist cinema.
