German film reconstructed in the 1960s, years after the Nazis destroyed the original negative. Combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of "respectable" society. Set in Victorian London in which both government and underworld are portrayed as amoral and polluted by economic and political chaos. A dashing thief called Mack the Knife gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of the beggars. When the outraged king sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life. Favorites from Weill's music score include Moritat, which became the 1957 pop hit Mack the Knife, and Pirate Jenny

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
