Book cinema tickets for Destiny

When a young woman realises that Death has taken her lover she attempts suicide, but is stopped at the entranceway to the afterlife by Death. She begs him to let her beloved go, and Death offers to do so if she can save at least one of three lives in danger of being extinguished in the exotic settings of Persia, Venice and ancient China. A wonderfully atmospheric and compelling metaphysical drama from the great Fritz Lang (Metropolis).

This definitive presentation recreates the original German intertitles and simulates the historic colour tinting and toning of its initial release. It also features a newly recorded score by Cornelius Schwehr which was originally performed at Berlinale 2016.
