Different From The Others (Anders Als Die Andern)


(out of 5)

Milestone film that depicts gay romance as something that happens to moral human begins.   appears in an early role as a famous musician who falls madly in love with a young protégé.  They look forward to finding something luscious behind the closed doors of their uptight society, but a blackmailer shows up and ruins everything, separating them and provoking tragedy.  The film was heavily censored by the Nazis many years after its original release, which means that the complete version no longer exists, so the remaining prints feature poor image quality and titles that explain the sequences that are missing.  What remains, though, while not superbly compelling, is definitely of interest for the archive.
