Rate this:
The landmark 1931 version of Bertolt Brecht's musical play about the underworld of 1920s Germany (itself loosely based on The Beggar's Opera,by 18th-century English writer John Gay) is regarded as a classic of 1930s European film. Brecht's leftwing satire of Weimar German society comes through powerfully.
