Descripción del producto

El Golem, una estatua de arcilla moldeada por un mago ancestral, toma vida en la Praga medieval gracias al rabino Loew y protege a la gente del ghetto de la tiranía del gobierno. Basándose en la novela de Gustav Meyrink, el realizador alemán Paul Wegener coescribió, codirigió y protagonizó este antecedente de las películas de monstruos creados por el hombre en tres películas realizadas entre 1915 y 1920. La última versión disfrutó de tal éxito que en Nueva York estuvo en cartel durante casi un año.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Golem 17 de agosto de 2015
Por Bwhami - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
The Golem is a movie based on an old Jewish folktale about a Rabbi who brings to life a clay man to defend the Jews of a Ghetto in Prague during the 1600's. Written, directed and staring Paul Wegner as the Golem this silent film is fun to watch. Some people wonder if Mary Shelly was influenced by the legend of the Golem when writing he book Frankenstein. There is no direct evidence that supports this theory and there are some differences. The movie tells the story of a group of Jews living in the Prague Ghetto, when the Emperor decides to empty the Ghetto of all Jews. Rabbi Low or Lowe using forbidden magic from the Kabbalah, brings the Golem to life. The Golem is an enjoyable movie and the one classic scene is the Monster carrying off the beautiful woman in his arms. Another German film released the same year, the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari also has a scene of the "monster" carrying off a beautiful woman. Since both films came out the same year a few months apart, the Cabinet came out first so it is credited as the first "horror" film, both movies influenced all the Horror films to follow. I enjoyed the movie and there is drama, a love story and a bit of comedy. The Monster is destroyed in the most unlikely manner. I would recommend both films. I would also recommend the movie Frankenstein, made 11 years later in 1931. The scene with a little girl is almost the same, except how each ends.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great Silent Film - well worth seeing, and beautifully restored 24 de noviembre de 2013
Por Nicholas Dollak - Publicado en
Formato: DVD Compra verificada
This is one of those great old silent films one hears of, sees stills from, but has a hard time finding. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves silent film or would like to explore it. It's beautifully shot, with atmospheric lighting and sets. The story is one familiar to many: Rabbi Loew of Prague uses arcane magic to create a giant out of clay to defend the Jews of Prague from their oppressors. The plan works pretty well, until the giant (the Golem) runs amok, either because the rabbi forgot to turn it off for the Sabbath, or because someone else commandeered it. In this retelling, there's a doomed romance between the rabbi's daughter and a young man among the town's aristocracy who falls in love with her. As usual, Kino did an amazing job with the restoration.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Identification of the background music. 19 de marzo de 2014

This comment is mainly about the background music of this version of "Golem" (with the yellow font on the DVD case). Count me as a lover of this movie, which helped introduce me to the silent film genre. Yes, it's splotchy, with poor lighting typical of the 1920 era. But this film clearly heavily influenced the Karloff version of Frankenstein in many, obvious ways.
Now, about the music. Some reviewers consider it "meaningless". To each their own. Other versions of Golem used different music, e.g., the Brandenburg Concerto. However, in this particular version, shown above with the yellow "Golem" lettering and little girl.... after more than 5 years of searching I finally discovered the beautiful (in my opinion) background music: Bruckner's Symphony #2 in C minor. It uses themes from the first movement, for the most part. Gorgeous, atmospheric music. It was very difficult finding this because, as noted by another reviewer, the DVD and case have no music credits whatsoever. After years of detective work and some knowledge of classical music, I gradually narrowed it down from "some kind of German Romantic music", through "possibly Brahms or Mahler", and finally realized "it's Bruckner's 2nd!". Enjoy!

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Recommended 4 de febrero de 2016

The video refused to stream on my Blu-Ray player, and Amazon was unable to remedy the issue,which only occurred with this video. Nevertheless, this prototype "monster movie" from the early silent era was effective, engrossing and visually stunning. It was worth sitting and watching on my laptop.

I recommend this for horror fans, especially if you adore "mad scientist" and man-made monster stories ala "Frankenstein."
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Silent classic 9 de enero de 2014
Por Chief Mac - Publicado en

Silent films tend to be grossly under appreciated in this day of super stars, color, special effects and flashy advertising. I have no doubt that all but a true movie buff, one not settled into the appreciation of one genre, is even aware of films like "The Golem". To each their own, but they are missing a look into the history that makes today's films what they are.

"The Golem" is based on a figure from Jewish legend. In order to protect the Jewish community, a clay figure is made and animated to serve as a guardian and righter of wrongs. As in most of these stories, the creation becomes more than the creator intended and must meet the fate of all such creatures that get out of control.

It's a great film for those who like this genre. Worth the time for those who would like to explore the techniques of earlier film makers that give us the films we enjoy today.
