Nachts, wenn der Teufel kam

Piru tuli yöllä / Djävulen kom om natten / The Devil Strikes at Night. DE (BRD) 1957. PC: KG Divina Film. D: Robert Siodmak. DP: Georg Kraus. AD: Rolf Zehetbauer, Gottfried Will. M: Siegfried Franz. Starring Claus Holm (Inspector Axel Kersten), Annemarie Düriger (Helga Hornung), Mario Adorf (Bruno Lüdke). 105 min. A Goethe Institut print with English subtitles viewed at Cinema Orion, Helsinki, 25 September 2008. - A fine print, the best I have seen from this Goethe package "Germany After the War and Before the Wall". - Siodmak in good form, strong cinematic storytelling, with expressionistic force. I saw only the beginning and am looking forward to seeing it all.
