The Burning Soil

Although the great director F.W. Murnau shifted his style from film to film, he's often better known for his expressionism and use of sets (as in The Last Laugh, Faust, and Sunrise) than for shooting on locations (as in Nosferatu and Tabu). Released in 1922, just after Nosferatu, and long believed to be lost, this tale about two rural brothers is often discussed as a major early work of the second type, and the extracts I've seen are impressive. In German with subtitles. 110 min.
