Der Dybbuk-1937 by 4gottenlore Der Dybbuk-1937 by 4gottenlore
Der Dybbuk(1937), this was a movie recommended to me by a fellow deviant here :iconmisscreepington: and stop by and check out her artwork, its really amazing. Synopsis of the film courtesy of IMDb "In a Polish shtetl, two young men who have grown up together betrothe their unborn children, ignoring the advice of a mysterious traveler not to pledge the lives of future generations. Soon after, one of them dies, and the wife of the other dies in childbirth. The children grow up in different towns, without ever knowing of the betrothal, but the power of the vow leads them to meet each other when they are marriageable. The young woman, Leah, is promised to another man, but Channon, the son of the father who died, is a practitioner of mysticism, and seeks to win his bride through sorcery. "
The film is floating around on youtube but some of them don't have subtitles, however it is still a great film and really one to watch.

While you are at it, consider doing the classic silent horror film, "The Golem" (if you haven't). Set in medieva Prague, it tells how a Rabbi creates a giant man out of clay, and gives it life using Jewish mysticism and "Kaballah".  The name of God is on the Golem, and as such it will exist, but when it is erased the giant will collapse back into clay or dirt (as it does in a memorable finale. The Rabbi does this to create a protector for the Jews in the Ghetto from anti-Semites, and it works, but the unwieldy giant has to be destroyed eventually when it threatens the Jews as well.  The story was said to have influenced Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein".  Interestingly, the Czech Republic's souveneir salesmen in Prague sell small statues of the Golem to tourists!

This is so brilliant in so many ways. Not only do you manage to characterize and summarize the movie and its characters, but you also get the feeling of those old, expressionist theatre-movie-ads across.
What I'm thinking about is something like this: [link]

YET you manage to stay modern and to show your own sense of style. This is really what I like about your movie posters AND one gets some very good movie-suggestions. ;)

And of course am so flattered, that you mentioned me in the comment. :la:
