Luis Trenker Writers: Luis Trenker (novel), Reinhart Steinbicker, 2 more credits » Stars: Luis Trenker, Maria Andergast, Bertl Schultes
$13.99

Heimatfilm von und mit Luis Trenker, der als Auswanderer der ihn einengenden Bergwelt entfliehen will und in New York feststellen muss, dass das Leben dort noch viel härter und unmenschlicher ist. Mit beeindruckenden Bildern lebt der Film vom Kontrast zwischen den Dolomiten und der Großstadt, deren Hochhäuser ihrerseits wie Berge in Szene gesetzt sind. Der Film endet mit einem Loblied auf die dörfliche Gemeinschaft, bei deren gemeinsamer Sonnwendfeier der ernüchterte Heimkehrer zu seiner vorübergehend verschmähten Dorfliebe zurückfindet. 

In this Heimatfilm, Luis Trenker plays a Bavarian wishing to flee the constrictive and provincial life of his Bavarian mountain village.  He ends up fleeing to New York in the middle of the Great Depression and discovers city life to be brutal and inhuman. The contrast between the Alps and the big city is shown in the film's impressive scenes; especially those of the skyscrapers of Manhattan, which are filmed as if they were mountains of a different kind.  The film ends as a paean to the village community. The disillusioned émigré returns to his mountain village during a solstice festival and finds his way back to the woman he left behind. 

DVD-R is in German with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 80 mins + 22 min. contemproary newsreel.  Excellent, digital quality.
