About this movie


he most brilliant example of that dark and twisted film movement known as German expressionism, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a plunge into the mind of insanity that severs all ties with the rational world.

Director Robert Wiene and a team of designers crafted a nightmare realm in which light, shadow and substance are abstracted, a world in which a demented doctor and a carnival sleepwalker perpetuate a series of murders in a small community.

This Kino on Video edition is taken from a 35mm print restored by the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv of Germany, featuring the original color tinting and toning. The title translation is by Kinograph Montréal.

With Conrad Veidt (Contraband, Waxworks), Werner Krauss (Waxworks), Lil Dagover, Freidrich Feher

  • A 43-minute condensation of Robert Wiene's Genuine: The Tale of a Vampire (1920)
