ICH BEI TAG UND DU BEI NACHT

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE OF THE 2K RESTORATION

"One of the crowning glories of the German musical." – Peter von Bagh

"Extremely successful little charmer, an etude in happiness." – Dominik Graf

Produced by Erich Pommer during the late Weimar period when the great UFA studio created commercially and critically successful genre films, this screwball musical comedy tells the story of a manicurist and a waiter who share the same rented bedroom but never meet face to face. They do, however, dislike what they know about each other, but when they finally meet, they both immediately fall in love.

“Two months later the Nazis seized power, so the film with its many participants of Jewish faith disappeared from the cinemas. It is incomprehensible why it took 87 years to be re-released.” — Anonymous

“In the middle of an economic crisis, Ludwig Berger succeeds in reconciling fairy tales with contemporary images and the role of cinema.” — Zeughauskino Deutsches Museum

The 6pm screening on Thursday 27 April will be introduced by John McDonald, film critic for the Australian Financial Review and art critic for the Sydney Morning Herald.
