The wedding march by Erich Von Stroheim( visu )

Vienna 1914; Prince Nicki, the son of aristocrats falls in love with a poor girl whom he meets at a street parade. His parents are pushing him into marrying money. Von Stroheim uses a variant on the romantic triangle - two overlapping triangles formed by the two lovers Nicki and Mitzi, Cecelia the daughter of a wealthy manufacturer and Schani a brutish butcher. The larger story is the twilight of the ancient regime in a film of carefully balanced contrasts: innocence against sophistication, the lush decadence of the palace against the delicately romantic apple orchard, the refined sensibility of Nicki against the mindlessly violent Schani. The second part of the film, The Honeymoon, was not released except briefly in Europe and has now been lost
