The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari (2002 edition)

Freidrich Feher
Lil Dagover
Werner Krauss
Conrad Veidt

Composed by Rainer Viertblöck and Donald Sosin
Directed by Robert Wiene

Please note, new restoration to be released on DVD/Blu Ray on 11/18/2014

The 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 Montreal.

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