Watch: The Hands of Orlac (1924) Robert Wiene
The Hands of Orlac (1924) Robert Wiene
World-famous pianist Paul Orlac loses his hands after a tragic accident. To play the piano again, Orlac needs someone else’s hands. These new hands will cause Orlac to fight himself.
The Hands of Orlac is one of the best examples of personality conflict subject in the early stages of cinema. The atmosphere created by German Expressionism and the story fit together perfectly. These two elements will be used by Tim Burton in Edward Scissorhands years later, very similar to the original.
