M’s Movies – Pandora’s Box

Directed by Georg Wilhelm Pabst in his New Objectivity period. The film is based on two plays by Frank Wedekind Erdgeist” and Die Büchse der Pandora”. Louise Brooks plays the central figure Lulu. This film is notorious for it’s frank treatment of modern sexual mores, including the first screen portrayal of a lesbian.

Brooks then starred in the controversial social dramas Diary Of A Lost Girl (1929) , also directed by Pabst, and Prix de Beauté (1930), the latter being filmed in France, and having a famous surprise ending. All these films were heavily censored, as they were very “adult” and considered shocking in their time for their portrayals of sexuality, as well as their social satire.
