The Captain from Koepenick (1926)


I haven't seen this but it presumably is the same satire about Prussian militarism influence on Germany. A second hand officer's uniform worn by a man seeking a work permit gets Germans to obey without questions the wearer of the uniform.

| Excellent, sophisticated satire of German society and military.
Set in the depression, this film ridicules the German military's propensity to follow orders unthinkingly, and shows the plight of people such as the unemployed, stateless and ex-convicts. Hitler had all copies that could be found destroyed. A beautiful, poignant, yet very funny movie.
