Picture by Filmphilharmonic Edition. The silent version of Lewis Milestone’s classic war film with a new score by Manfred Knaak live in concert. The composer writes: „The music for this movie resides somewhere between Alban Berg and Miles Davis on the one hand and Maurice Ravel and Frank Zappa on the other, a cross-over in which different styles interpenetrate and recombine into something new. A serious, humanistic tone that is packed with cinematic action permeates the entire score: a great, heated regret over what is happening. Yet it is all paired with humorous echoes of jazz and impressionist emotional scenes. The music consistently retreats into a distanced consciousness and accords the film another existential level.“ Supported by: Staatsorchester Braunschweig, Europäische Film Philharmonie, city of Brunswick.
