Summary
  • Death in the form of an uncanny stranger gives a young girl three chances to save her lover's life if she can deliver a substitute life. She is transported back in turn to old Bagdad, 17th century Venice and mythical China in search of this life. Despite the suggestion of expressionist abstraction in mood setting and conception of character, the concentration on death, the supernatural and fairy-tale figures draws more on the world of German romanticism. Lang brought his eye for realistic detail to his continuing theme of 'the fight of the individual against destiny' as he described it. The figure of Death is humanised which has the effect of emphasising the implacability of fate.
