Such is Life + live musical accompaniment by Miloš Orson Štědroň

This beautiful digitally restored version of Such is Life represents the pinnacle of European silent era filmmaking. Director Carl Junghans captures the tragic tale of an aging laundress whose profligate husband, a brutal alcoholic, takes advantage of her labours. Bold editing, reminiscent of a Soviet cinematic aesthetic, creates its own emotive and symbolic rhythm, advancing the movie’s social aspects - the wrath of marital bickering, frantic dancing on a pub table, and the burden of destiny.
