Diary of a Lost Girl1929

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 4.3
Louise Brooks, in a delicately restrained performance, plays the naïve daughter of a prosperous pharmacist. Shy and fawnlike, the wide-eyed innocent is made pregnant by her father's young assistant. To preserve family honor, she is sent to a repressive reform school from which she eventually escapes. Penniless and homeless, she is directed to a brothel where she becomes liberated and lives for the moment with radiant physical abandon. DIARY OF A LOST GIRL has been mastered from a new restoration of the film made by the Cineteca di Bologna which adds approximately seven minutes of previously censored footage never seen in the United States. An evocative new score has been added by Joseph Turrin.

"In a world of cruelty, the Brooks characters stand as enduring figures. How she accomplishes this is the mystery of her acting." - Roger Ebert

The second collaboration between G.W. Pabst and Lousie Brooks is silent film melodrama at it’s best, a stunning look at Weimar decadence and Weimar hypocrisy.

Brooks has a timeless screen presence, transcending the decades and delivering a performance that resonates today. You almost expect her to jump off the screen and into the 21st Century. It leaves us to wonder what she and Pabst might have come up with had they done another movie.
