The detective and crime genre can now be seen as one of the most interesting examples of cinema culture from the decade beginning 1910. The English streets and landscapes, in which the detective from ]]>Das Vermächtnis des Hauses Moore]]> chased the suspect, were shot in Baden and Vienna and lend the film, which hasn’t survived in complete form, a special charm. ]]>Frauenehre]]> blows its narrative structure with a refined flashback structure. What happened is slowly put together from various building blocks and interpretations. The truth is fragile, and the moral basis all the more effectively provides a framework for the action on the screen.

Music: Daniel Nösig (trumpet), Florian C. Reithner (piano)
