Movie N° 192: Destiny – F. Lang 1921 DEU

A reference for the productive years of german film industry, mainly shot in Potsdam Babelsberg by Fritz Lang.

This movie is a fable about death. For that Lang drew some dividing lines in a visual-spatial manner, which were exceeded by watching the movie: At first there is the neighborhood to death. This one takes her toll, the protagonist´s husband dies. The attempts to force the husband out of death, are taking the viewer through cultural dividing lines into many different exotic societies. 

We choose this movie with its sets because of the threshold from life to death, which will be exceeded and because of the impressive illustration of the kingdom of death.
