Tag: Louise Kolm-Fleck



Der Meineidbauer (1926) is the first film by Louise Kolm-Fleck and Jakob Fleck made in Germany, although filming had already taken place in Austria several years earlier. A film that, in terms of many of its technical characteristics, classifies as a hybrid film, a true gem of Austrian and German cinema that perfectly straddles two nations and two different decades. At the Viennale 2019, as part of the retrospective dedicated to Louise Kolm-Fleck.



Sinuous bodies, together with intense close-ups, become the great protagonists of Die Warschauer Zitadelle (made in 1930 by Louise Kolm-Fleck and Jakob Fleck), which, in turn, stands out above all for its stylistic elegance, fluent camera movements and, last but not least, an excellent script that is both romantic and brutal at the same time and not at all predictable, ranking as one of the couple’s most mature films. At the Viennale 2019, within the retrospective dedicated to Louise Kolm-Fleck.



In Crucified Girl, Louise Kolm-Fleck and Jakob Fleck staged the personal tragedy of a young woman in a sensitive and completely subjective way, so that they could empathise with what was being portrayed, but also maintain the right detachment and rationality in portraying such a dramatic situation that only a few people at the time could really understand. At the Viennale 2019.



In Louise, writer, director and radio host Uli Jürgens has deliberately opted for a simple and linear mise-en-scène, free of unnecessary directorial virtuosities, for a sensitive and tenderly sincere homage to one of the most important pioneers of Austrian cinema, and not only. At the Viennale 2019, at the opening of the retrospective dedicated to Louise Kolm-Fleck.
