Abstract:

One of the major works of German silent cinema, Murnau's class drama depicts the fall of the respected, aging, hotel doorman of a posh 1920s Berlin hotel, who is cruelly stripped of his position and reduced to a bathroom attendant, before his fortunes turn and he becomes a millionaire. 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.
