DAS SCHWEIGEN AM STARNBERGERSEE (1920) * with switchable English and Spanish subtitles *

Carla Nelsen Ludwig Wengg Ferdinand Bonn Toni Zehend Addi Homburg Anton Herrmann

This is a very early feature by Rolf Raffé concerning the supposedly “mad” King of Bavaria, Ludwig II. In the piece, which is for the most part a straightforwards historical biopic from the DW Griffith school of narrative filmmaking, Ludwig is portrayed as an Idealist who cannot fit into the world of his contemporaries.

Rolf Raffés Das Schweigen am Starnberger See konzentriert sich stark auf Ludwigs Beziehung zu Richard Wagner.

DVD-R has German intertitles with switchable English and Spanish subtitles. Approx. 82 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
