Newly Restored The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari Heading to Blu-ray

Posted April 14, 2014 04:30 AM by Webmaster

Blu-ray MoviesGerman label Universum Film has revealed that it plans to release on Blu-ray director Robert Wiene's masterpiece The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, and Friedrich Feher. The preliminary release date set by the label is June 13th.

The legendary silent film was recently restored by Murnau-Stiftung in collaboration with the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv and L'Immagine Ritrovata - Film Restoration and Conservation. Earlier this year, the new restoration had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Synopsis: This classic piece of German expressionist cinema employs stylized sets, costumes and make-up to tell its story from a shifting point of view. Dr Caligari runs a side show at a fair where a somnambulist predicts someone's death and that night the person is murdered. The somnambulist turns out to be a lunatic from a local asylum and Dr. Caligari the asylum's insane director.

Note: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari: The Making-of A Restoration video included with this news announcement is provided by BertelsmannSE.

Caligari, Metropolis, Nosferatu = The holy trinity of silent film for me

Awesome movie, at least 80 % of Tim Burton's visual style comes from this film (specially his early movies).

Universum Film is releasing Nosferatu the same day...wonder if this release will be any different than those from Kino/MoC? Hopefully more details to follow. Restored footage from BertelsmannSE's video looks awesome.

Wow.....this looks like a high quality full blown restoration like Metropolis . I am looking forward to this release . Too bad Nosferatu wasn't restored to this quality .

AHHHH!!!! I've been waiting forever for this! I'm so excited! I had a feeling it would come to blu-ray soon since they did restore it several months ago. This is my favorite silent movie ever!

Would LOVE to get this!! Being a German film being released by a German company, what about the title cards? Will they include English translation? I do not know German, so I am out until UK or US (highly doubtful) releases this masterpiece. Love these German silent films (Sunrise being my fav).

@montyb: "...I am out until UK or US (highly doubtful) releases this masterpiece."

I wouldn't say a US release is "highly doubtful". Actually, I'd be rather astonished if Kino doesn't have plans to release it here. They've released Metropolis and Nosferatu, and Caligari was part of their German Horror Classics DVD set.

It'll be so nice to finally be able to see this without that constant top of the frame horizontal scratch that's in most editions I've seen.

MoC and Kino will definitely be releasing this, but if Universum's edition is English-friendly and comes out earlier, I'm in. This restoration surpasses my wildest expectations, and they did a lovely job with the "M" 80th anniversary release.

Completely agree with Joe. I hope there's an English intertitle option. The 4k samples are amazing!

ditto the high hopes for english friendly. Joe, that Universum M slipped passed my radar, will have to get that soon (was dissapointed in the Criterion PQ, not their fault). Are there any other foreign exclusive restorations like this?
