Guiseppe Becce – Detlev Glanert: The Last Laugh

The Last Laugh was a pioneer of its time with its ground-breaking camera and photography techniques. The capture of the film is best described by Lotte Eisner: “opalescent surfaces streaming with reflections, rain, or light: car windows, the glazed leaves of the revolving door reflecting the silhouette of the doorman dressed in a gleaming black waterproof, the dark moss of houses with lighted windows, wet pavements and shimmering puddles...His camera captures the filtered half-light falling from the street seizes railings through basement windows”

A unique film and music experience. The new Soundtrack orchestration by Detlev Glanert shall be presented by one of the most famous film music conductors Frank Strobel and the Orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin.
