New Trailer & Poster For Eureka's Theatrical Release Of Fritz Lang's DER MUDE TOD

The silent classic comes to UK/ROI cinemas in June.







Cited by Alfred Hitchcock and Luis Bunuel as an influence on their work, Fritz Lang's 1921 Der Mude Tod (aka Destiny) is ripe for rediscovery. Eureka will release the film, accompanied by a newly-composed score by Cornelius Schwehr, in UK/ROI cinemas on June 9th, followed by a dual format blu-ray/DVD release on July 17th as part of their Masters of Cinema Series.


Eureka's synopsis reads:

A young woman (Lil Dagover) confronts the personification of Death (Bernhard Goetzke), in an effort to save the life of her fiancé (Walter Janssen). Death weaves three romantic tragedies and offers to unite the girl with her lover, if she can prevent the death of the lovers in at least one of the episodes. Thus begin three exotic scenarios of ill-fated love, in which the woman must somehow reverse the course of destiny: Persia, Quattrocento Venice, and a fancifully rendered ancient China.
