“A few weeks ago, I already saw ‘Die Büchse der Pandora’ and since Louise Brooks really blew me away at the time, I was quite eager to see this other movie she also made in 1929. It’s only afterwards that I discovered that both movies had the same director (G. W. Pabst). It’s interesting because I think that the two movies had a completely different vibe. I do think that ‘Pandora’ had a stronger story and a stronger character for Brooks but ‘Diary’ was however narratively less disjointed. Still, even though both movies were entertaining, I think that they were rather messy though. For example, in this case, it took me forever to figure out that Frieda was not Thymian’s mother but actually her aunt. It was also rather bewildering that Meinert was not fired and kicked out f” read more

"25.8. Mykkäaikakauden loppuvaiheilla Pabstin elokuvakerronta alkoi olla niin viimeisen päälle hiottua, että on oikeastaan sääli, miten ohjaajan ura vedettiin vessanpöntöstä alas siksi, että katsojat halusivat vikiseviä äänitähtiä."
