Menschen am Sonntag

This semidocumentary from 1929 is the last really notable German silent film, but its chief value lies in the showcase it provided for a number of young directors and assistant directors, all of whom gained notoriety later on: Billy Wilder, Robert Siodmak, Edgar G. Ulmer, and Fred Zinnemann. The title refers to two couples who spend a Sunday in the countryside around Berlin; the film uses nonprofessionals in a way reminiscent of Flaherty and Vertov.
