Whoa–I started to think of Fritz Lang as a bit of a hack who happened to be in the right place at the right time, but this 1921 flick (The Weary Death, usually translated as Destiny) restored some of my faith. The story, courtesy of Thea von Harbou, is great maudlin melodrama, but the images are fantastic. With Lil Dagover, Walter Janssen, Bernhard Goetzke and Rudolf Klein-Rogge.
