Der letzte Mann ist ein deutscher Stummfilm von Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau. Er hatte am Dezember im Berliner Ufa-Palast am Zoo Premiere. Der Erfolg.

In the midst of the Russian Revolution of , the crew of the battleship Potemkin mutiny against the brutal, tyrannical regime of the vessel's officers.
The resulting street demonstration in Odessa brings on a police massacre. On New Year's Eve, the driver of a ghostly carriage forces a drunken man to reflect on his selfish, wasted life.
Arch-criminal Dr. Mabuse sets out to make a fortune and run Berlin. Detective Wenk sets out to stop him. Emil Jannings is the doorman of the elegant Atlantic Hotel.
He is proud of his uniform and function, and respected by his community. When he reaches the old age, he has difficulties to carry trucks and suitcases.
The hotel manager decides to change his function to washroom attendant. This apparently simple action is enough to destroy him as a human being.
He loses his self-respect and when his neighbor finds that he is janitor of the hotel, he loses the respect of his neighbors and friends.
Warning - Possible spoilers lie within. This is the first silent movie I have watched in its entirety, having previously found myself becoming restless and distracted, I normally find them quite difficult to watch.
I came across the Criterion edition of the movie in a large collection of Laserdiscs that I purchased recently, and decided to give it a try.
I was speechless. It's an incredibly emotional story - during his downfall, as his friends and family mock him, Jannings' depressed, hunched-over figure can be painfully sad to watch.
I found myself filling up in the scene when he finally hands his beloved porter's uniform over to the night watchman. A landmark in the era of silent films, Murnau used some very clever camera tricks such as smearing vaseline on the camera lens for 'dream' sequences.
It was also one of the first films to use a completely free moving camera with no tripod, testimony to the success of this can be seen immediately in the first scene as the film starts.
There are also no title cards in the film. Nor are they needed - The story is carried perfectly by the actors and on no occasion do you feel that you don't know what is going on.
I won't give anything away here, but there are some people that may feel the ending is a little out of place - However, I had grown so fond on Jannings' character that in a way, I was relieved to see the film move on from the final scene where he is sat hunched on the seat in the washroom - and for him to finally have 'The Last Laugh' so to speak :o If you have any interest in old cinema, and have not seen this, or just fancy a change from all of the samey Hollywood flicks being churned out right now, I suggest you hunt out a copy right away.

Edit Cast Complete credited cast: Emil Jannings Hotelportier [Hotel Doorman] Maly Delschaft Geschäftsführer [Hotel Manager] Olaf Storm Jannings, whose massive presence and broad expressions are perfectly suited to the role, preens in his brass buttoned coat.
He smartly salutes the guests as they enter the hotel and exults in escorting two attractive young ladies — one clinging to each arm — to a taxi.
On his walk home he is a man of respect in the neighborhood, condescendingly patting children on the head and nodding at his friends and neighbors.
On the following day, it becomes clear that his difficulty with luggage has not gone unnoticed. The doorman pleads to remain in his old job as the manager impassively puffs on a cigar.
Finally the manager tires of these entreaties and he forcibly strips the doorman of his magnificent coat and forces him to go to his new post.
Utterly bereft, the doorman clings to his old identity, stealing his old coat so that he can walk home and still maintain his former status.
The dream is shot in a vividly expressionist style, with distorting lenses, canted angles and superimpositions.
His masquerade is only successful for a single day and he is found out by one of the gossiping housewives from his building.
He finally sadly accepts his fate and crumples into a whimpering ball of self-pity at the back of the bathroom. Suddenly, the first and only intertitle of the film appears, explaining that this is where the story truly should end, but that the author has taken pity on the doorman.
In the sequence that follows, we find out that the doorman has suddenly become rich and we watch him return to the hotel as a swaggering millionaire.
Film scholar Bert Cardullo writes that this epilogue is generally considered to be an aberration, added on to what is meant to be a tragic tale 1.
The German and American titles of the film are often discussed in the debate about this ending. In the party scene, the doorman drunkenly imitates the actions and gestures we saw in the opening sequence.
He salutes phantom patrons with mock solemnity and seems to laugh at his own pomposity. Even as this scene reveals his bitterness about losing his job, it also serves as self-parody.Filmtyp Spielfilm. Wie bewertest du den Film?
