L'Opera de quat' sous Die 3 groschenoper by Kurt Weill( visu )
1 edition published in 1998 in French and held by 4 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

Zur Chronik von Grieshuus ( visu )
3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and No Linguistic Content and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Über dem trutzigen Herrensitz der Familie Grieshuus ziehen im 17. Jahrhundert dunkle Wolken auf. Der Lieblingssohn will eine einfache Jägerstochter heiraten, weshalb ihn das Oberhaupt schweren Herzens enterbt, will er das edle Haus doch eigentlich nicht dem habgierigen Zwillingssohn überantworten. Als der verbitterte Hausherr vor Gram stirbt, entbrennt ein Unglück und Tod bringender Kampf ums Erbe, der auch in der Nachfolgegeneration keinen Abschluss findet. Eindrucksvolles Ausstattungsdrama, das inszenatorisch wie darstellerisch exemplarisch das hohe Niveau des Unterhaltungsfilms während der Weimarer Republik aufzeigt. In der emotionalen Wucht an Fritz Langs "Nibelungen" erinnernd, wird die Novelle von Theodor Fontane auf sein blutiges Intrigen- und Rachespiel fokussiert und mahnt im Stil einer griechischen Tragödie den Kampf um das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung (in der Liebe) an. Der Film wurde 2005 restauriert und 2014 mit der restaurierten Originalfilmmusik von Gottfried Huppertz gekoppelt. [film-dienst.de]
Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's The threepenny opera ( visu )
2 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Reconstructed in the sixties- years after the original negative was destroyed by the Nazis- G.W. Pabst's Threepenny opera remains a deliciously dark film adaptation of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil's brillant musical. A master of atmosphere, Pabst combines realism and expressionism for a biting satire of 'respectable' society. Foggy sets by Andre Andreiev and Fritz Arno Wagner's stunning cinematography pull us down into the seedy underworld of 1890's London. There a dashing thief called 'Mack the Knife' gets away with robbery on a daily basis until he marries the daughter of Soho's 'Beggar King.' When the outraged King sends a force of crooked cops after Mack, the bandit must run for his life."-box
