Synopsis

Restored version of the silent film, reconstructed by the Netherlands Film Museum, with a new score by Elena Kats-Chernin. Based on an original story by Curt Siodmak, uses a blend of feature and documentary to tell the story of five young Berliners - a taxi driver, a travelling wine dealer, a record shop sales girl, a film extra and a model - spending a typical Sunday in and around the city. The five principals were all amateurs who actually worked at the jobs described in the film. It was shot over a number of Sundays during the summer of 1929.
