A film under the influence of the expressionist cinema of the Weimar Republic. Conrad Veidt plays a magician - elegant, full of virtuosity, with a soul that harbours deep chasms. And Hal Mohr's mobile camerawork can easily compete with the inventiveness of Karl Freund. Gerhard Gruber will accompany the silent film on the piano.
