Die grosse Sehnsucht (1930)


Personal opinion: “Die grosse Sehnsucht” is an interesting film, because it offers a glimpse of the cinema world. In fact, the film consists mostly of backstage scenes, that show how the cast and crew work on a production. Conrad appears as himself in his last silent film, together with many other famous actors, like Theodor Loos, Lil Dagover, Liane Haid, Anny Ondra, and Fritz Kortner. Camilla Horn has the leading role, and she is the kind of actress that is beautiful to look at. You will enjoy “Die grosse Sehnsucht” and I am sure it represented a fascinating motion picture at its time, especially to the young ladies who wanted to become actresses…and meet Conrad Veidt.
