Example text

The film’s narrative drives towards that final constellation encapsulated in its ultimate shot. Metropolis opens with a shot of a city signaling its abstract design, which reflects the modernist vision of functionalism and the absence of decoration. Onto this shot continued 42 • Modernity and the city film are projected close-ups of industrial machines that function in a well-orchestrated rhythm. By showing only parts of machines, the close-ups celebrate the industrial aesthetic and at the same time obscure the concrete function of the machines.

The three groups of films are also linked by the influence they had on each other: style and themes of Weimar cinema reappear in film noir, which in turn is quoted and referenced by the directors of the French New Wave. These connections do not contradict the understanding of national cinema; even during its height, transnational exchange was common, sometimes resulting from migration, as when filmworkers from the Weimar Republic fled the Hitler regime and found work in Hollywood. Later, French directors paid homage to individual filmmakers and actors in Hollywood who sometimes, like Fritz Lang, were film émigrés from Germany.

Several of the important film noir directors were German or Austro-Hungarian and had fled Hitler’s dictatorship in Europe; consequently, this chapter, and particularly the case study of Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity (1944), investigates the continuation of and breaks between the aesthetic and topical representation of the Weimar city film and film noir. Parallel to the first chapter, here I discuss Los Angeles as an allegory for modernity and also continue examining the ways in which gender functions in city films: the flâneur Los Angeles • 47 and the prostitute in the Weimar city film are reincarnated in the private detective and the femme fatale.
