Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau / DEUZE, 1926 / 65 min.
To warn his wealthy grandfather about his evil housekeeper, a young man sets up a film screening of Molière's trickster comedy Tartuffe. With this film-in-film, director Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau assigned a special role to the still-developing art of film: it holds up a mirror to the audience. Olga Pashchenko guarantees a glowing piano accompaniment, just as she provided one last season for Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam.
