"...Brooks' looks and performance are so luminous and, by today's standards, so contemporary that her failure to make it in talkies continues to confound..."
"With their remarkable rapport, Brooks and Pabst turned a Victorian tale into a timeless story of hypocrisy forgiven and of good triumphant over evil."
"[W]holly convincing on screen...thanks to the psychological acuity of Pabst's direction, Brooks' luminous presence and a startlingly frank examination of sexual mores in Weimar Germany..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Brooks, in a delicately restrained performance, plays the naive daughter of a prosperous pharmacist. Shy and faun-like, the wide-eyed innocent is made pregnant by her father's young assistant. To preserve family honor, she is sent to a repressive reform school from which she eventually escapes. Penniless and homeless, she is directed to a brothel where she becomes liberated and lives for the moment with radiant physical abandon.
This Kino on Video version of Diary of a Lost Girl has been mastered from a new restoration of the film made by a group of European archives which adds approximately nine minutes of previously censored footage never seen in the United States. An evocative new score has been added by Joseph Turrin.
- A silent film.
- The print used for the Kino VHS version was restored by Connaissance du Cinema, Paris 1983.
