Product description

Product Description

After the visual fireworks of Sunrise and the now-lost splendour of 4 Devils, F.W. Murnau turned his attention to this vivid, painterly study of an impulsive and fragile marriage among the wheatfields of Minnesota. During a brief stay in Chicago, innocent farmer s son Lem falls for and weds Kate, a hard-bitten but lonely waitress. Upon bringing her home at the start of harvest time, the honeymoon soon turns into a claustrophobic struggle as they contend with the bitter scorn of his father and the invasive, leering jealousy of the farm s labouring community. Tenderly romantic and tough-minded in equal measure, City Girl is one of cinema s great pastorals, featuring some of the most delicate performances Murnau ever directed and influencing filmmakers such as Terrence Malick and Jean Vigo. SPECIAL FEATURES: * New to DVD, a restored high-definition transfer of the silent version by 20th Century Fox * A new score, composed and arranged in 2008 by Christopher Caliendo * Exclusive full-length audio commentary by film scholar David Kalat * 40-page illustrated booklet with new writing and reprints
