Canal March

Presentation of Varieté (1925)

Jenaro Talens

With Karl Freund as director of photography –who was also responsible for the cinematography of The Golem (Paul Wegener, 1920) and Metropolis (Fritz Lang, 1926)–, the film reflects great technical refinement in the narrative use of the camera, employing resources such as the close-up to create moments of tension and a point of view shot (subjective camera) to capture the trapeze artist in action. Jenaro Talens also reflects on historical issues by comparing the North-American version to the original German movie.
