Nosferatu (eine symphonie des Grauens) with live concert, Stefan Prins piano, Thomas Olbrechts sax, Nicolas Rombouts double bass, Uti Engels clarinet, Tor Lown voice (Nosferatu, a symphonie of horror)/1922-D) ZW-63 mm, R F.W. Murnau, Max Schreck, Alexander Granach, Gustav von wangenheim, Greta Schroeder, G.H. Schnell, Ruth Landshoff This classic horror film still possesses a lugubrious beauty. The script and camera work are terrifyingly meticulous. Max Schreck plays an unforgettable vampire evolving in an exuberant set – most of the feature has been filmed on location in a real castle. Bram Stoker’s widow sued the film company for plagiarism resulting in a withdrawal and total destruction of all the prints of this expressionistic drama. In 1930, the film was released again in a spoken version as DIE ZWÖLFTE STUNDE-EINE NACHT DES GRAUENS with music and sound effects. In 1986, Enno Patalas restored a print of 105’.
