New York Times
[The tale] feels 100 per cent authentic.
[W]hat immediately impresses is the fluidity of the camerawork and the detailed recreation of the London underworld.
Sight and Sound
This is the Great Depression musical American failed to produce.
Sight and Sound
This classic musical tells the story of a debonair gangster and his cohorts. Often voted by European audiences as one of world cinema's shining achievements, THE THREEPENNY OPERA was directed by famous director G.W. Pabst, composed by the legendary Kurt Weill, and stars Weill's wife, the incomparable and sleekly sexy cabaret singer Lotte Lenya.
