Pandora’s Box

One of the great silent films, GW Pabst’s Pandora’s Box is renowned for its sensational storyline, sparkling Weimar period setting and the legendary lead performances from its iconic star Louise Brooks.

Following the rise and fall of Lulu (Brooks), a spirited but innocent showgirl whose sheer sexual magnetism wreaks havoc on the lives of men and women alike, Pandora’s Box was controversial in its day, then underappreciated for decades. It now stands as an incredibly modern film, and few stars of any era dazzle as bright as Louise Brooks. (This silent film is with English captions).

Dir: G W Pabst: Germany 1929 (135mins)
