Featuring interviews with daughter Nicola Lubitsch, film historians Enno Patalas and Jan-Christopher Horak and filmmaker Tom Tykwer (among others), ERNST LUBITSCH IN BERLIN documents the life of the legendary filmmaker from his birth in 1892 to his departure for Hollywood in 1923. The feature-length documentary is sprinkled with excerpts from Lubitsch's rarely-seen early work (both as actor and director) and offers fascinating insights into the German film industry in the silent era.

A wonderful documentary and introduction to Lubitsch. His family is rather an annoying bunch, but the rest of the doc is great.
The film footage of the buildings and streets of Berlin provided a fascinating backdrop for the humor and fantasies of Lubitsch theater and film productions.
