5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a movie..., 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Das Testament Des Dr Mabuse [Masters of Cinema] (Dual Format Edition) [Blu-ray] [1933] (Blu-ray)
Amazing that UK restored that german movie and releasing it on Blu-Ray with GERMAN language track (with english subtitles). For me, as german speaking, I'm very happy that I had the chance to buy this movie on Blu-ray(DVD/Combo) in a very good quality. Ok, "M" was released in a better quality. BUT Picture and sound are really nice.

Info: Comissioner Lohmann - played by Otto Wernicke - does appear too in "M" (also by Fritz Lang) so you can see "Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse" as a kind of Semi-Sequel of "M".

What makes "Das Testament..." interesting? Well of course its a continuing story of "Dr. Mabuse - Der Spieler/The Gambler" (from 1922) and got a 2nd sequel in 1960 with "The 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse" (released in a Box in Germany with 5 more Mabuse movies).

But its more than a continuing story. It has a message: Each movie villain got words of Nazis and makes a bad view to the Nazis. Thats one reason why the movie was banned in 1933 and Fritz Lang left Germany. - so we should be happy that the movie survived in the archives -.

In this movie: you can see Theo Lingen who came famous later in 1960/70 with his german "Luemmel"-movies (a kind of american pie/high school musical movies) as Oberstudienrat Dr. Taft.

The Box contains a interesting Audio-Commentary and a 50 page booklet.

FAZIT: Entertaining and interesting for two reason.
