Until the mid-1930s, film producers of the early sound era often made films simultaneously in different language versions, using the same sets but different casts for each version. The few films which survive in both versions offer fascinating material for comparison. This DVD presents G W Pabst's twin versions, in German and French, of "The Threepenny Opera". Set in a shadowy, stylised and dreamlike Victorian London, the story of Mackie "The Knife" Messer and Polly Peachum is timeless, and the combination of Bertolt Brecht's biting social satire and Kurt Weill's compelling music is as fresh as ever
