Towards “Film Opera”. Kurt Weil’s Musical Experiments In Fritz Lang’s “You and Me”

Fritz Lang’s film You and Me was billed as a “musical revolution”. But it never became one. Anno Mungen describes Kurt Weill’s struggles to reshape the film as a genre. Both in his theoretical reflections and his (not successful) practical attempts as a film composer, Weill was preoccupied with the idea of music as a crucial element of the film/theatre dramaturgy. This idea – as Mungen tried to show,  analyzing three examples taken from Lang’s film – could direct the artist straight towards the category of film-opera.
