Social satire set in Victorian London in which both government and underworld are portrayed as amoral and polluted by economic and political chaos. Polly Peachum, daughter of the king of the beggars, with the help of Mackie Messer and his gang, opens a bank in the belief that legal thievery is more profitable than larceny. In the end, Polly's father, Mackie, and the corrupt police commissioner become partners in the bank and mainstays of society
L'Opera de quat' sous : Die 3 groschenoper by Kurt Weill( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early years of the sound era film producers often made films in different language versions, using the same sets but different casts. Pabst's twin versions of The threepenny opera shot in German and French make absorbing viewing. Set in a shadowy, stylised and dreamlike Victorian London, the story of Mack the Knife and Polly Peachum is timeless and the combination of Brecht's satire and Weill's music is as fresh as ever
