Lubitsch in Berlin: Six Films 1918-1921

High-definition restored transfers of all six films.

Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inmitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around the Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an impressive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman. This set collects six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch’s career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique.
