One of the major works of German silent cinema, Murnau's class drama
depicts the fall of the respected, aging, hotel doorman (Emil
Jannings) of a posh Berlin hotel, who is cruelly stripped of his
position and reduced to a bathroom attendant. The film was
groundbreaking for its expressive, mobile camera work, which imparts
information visually, without subtitles. "The camera on a trolley
glides, rises, zooms, or weaves where the story takes it. The camera
takes part in the action and becomes a character in the drama" (Marcel
Carne). With Max Hiller, Maly Delschaft and Hans Unterkirchen.
