Kreuzzug des Weibes (1926)


Personal opinion: Conrad is very good as the prosecuter attorney, but we could also observe the presence of other fine actors, like Werner Krauss (as the feeble-minded man) and Harry Liedtke (as the physician). This film is unusual because it reflects the problems generated by the law that interdicts abortion. Connie has some difficult scenes in which he is superb, especially when he finds out about the drama of his fiancée. He must decide between his duty and respect for the law, and his love for the woman who would make him break his commitment. In the end, love is triumphant, but the film obviously conveys a message against the controversial law of abortion, that raised so much criticism by the time this motion picture was released in Germany, in 1926.
