Berlin, simfonia unui mare oras (Berlin: Die synfonie einer Großstadt)

Germania, 1927, film documentar, alb-negru, 55 minute

regizor: Walter Ruttmann

Intre documentar si experiment artistic, “Berlin: simfonia unui mare oras” este o inregistrare fascinanta a unei singure zile din Berlinul anilor ’20. Imparţit in cinci acte, asemenea unei simfonii, filmul ne arata caleidoscopic viaţa frematatoare a orasului pe care il vedem cum se trezeste dimineaţa, se pune in miscare, munceste, se joaca, alearga, mananca, bea, danseaza si apoi adoarme la loc. Acest film spune “pass” artificialitaţii filmelor expresioniste ale vremii, alegand sa lase caţiva cameramani sa patrunda in interiorul orasului si sa-i filmeze pe cei care il ţin in viaţa.,_simfonia_unui_mare_oras_berlin:_die_synfonie_einer_grostadt/pls/fi/films.film_page?i_film_id=5020&i_city_id=-1&i_county_id=27&i_topic_id=2

Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (Berlin: Die synfonie einer Großstadt)

Germany, 1927, documentary film, black and white, 55 minuts

Directed by: Walter Ruttmann

A German silent film directed by Walter Ruttmann, and co-written by Carl Mayer and Karl Freund, is a prominent example of the city symphony genre.

Berlin: Symphony of a Great City is largely an avant-garde film, and does not have a story or a plot. However, the events of the film are arranged to simulate the passage of a single day (simulated from an assemblage of film shot over the period of one year).[5] Shots and scenes are cut together based on relationships of image, motion, point of view, and thematic content. At times, a sort of non-narrative commentary can be implied, as in edits that juxtapose workers entering a factory with cattle being beaten and driven into a corral.

The five reel film is divided into five acts, and each act is announced through a title card at the beginning and end. One leitmotiv that is present in all of the acts, which largely connects them, is the theme of the train and streetcar. Much of the motion in the film, and many of the scene transitions, are built around the motion of trains and streetcars.
