Renowned German actor Emil Jannings stars as a seedy circus owner who leaves his wife for a young dancer, but explodes when he discovers that the dancer is having an affair with an acrobat in his troupe.

With stunning trapeze sequences shot by legendary cinematographer Karl Freund in the Berlin Wintergarten theatre, the enduring power of the movie, in Pauline Kael’s words, “is the restless, subjective camera and the fast editing, which make it an almost voluptuous experience”.
