Description

Mother Krause shares a tenement apartment in Berlin’s Wedding district with her grown children, a shady lodger, his prostitute lover, and her child. She ekes out a living by selling newspapers, but when son Paul drinks up her earnings, desperation sets in. This Weimar masterpiece inspired R.W. Fassbinder’s 1975 Mutter Küsters’ Fahrt zum Himmel.

Restoration by the Munich Film Museum who reconstructed the film combining materials from the only remaining nitrate prints. The restoration has the original intertitles written in a Berliner dialect.
