Schlusssequenz in Technicolor

Musical, gangster ballads, detective novel. The story is about a dynamic dancer who wants to save a love; showgirls, who oscillate between emotion and career; prohibition winners, who wear themselves down in underworld feuds; investigators who gamble with their orientation in the milieu of appearance. None of them are much good as heroes. The brilliant equipment and the refined camera work are too engaging. Gerhard Gruber will accompany the silent film on the piano.
