TRICK OF LIGHT, A (I FRATELLI SKLADANOWSKY)
Lumiere and Company
(1995), the semidocumentary
A Trick of the Light
can be thought of as Wim Wenders' ode to the cinematic arts. Udo Kier (
Blood for Dracula
) and Otto Kuhnle (
Wings of Desire
) play the Skladanowsky brothers, who in 1895 beat the Lumiere brothers by a matter of months in their quest to project the first moving images publicly. This fascinating retelling of film history was gracefully photographed by Jurgen Jurges (
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
). In German WITHOUT English subtitles. Optional English dubbing.
