Honestly, expect for the funny masterpieces by/with Charles Chaplin, I always find it difficult to get really interested in silent movies. Don't misinterpret my words! I do enjoy other silent movies but they never really blow me away. This movie is a good example. It is one of the famous movies representing the German expressionism and it is quite gorgeous to look at. However, even though the story was intriguing, I got restless due to the lack of dialogs and I had a hard time investing myself in the story and the characters. To conclude, it is a beautiful and fascinating movie and since it is such a classic, it is definitely worth a look.
