Best known as Pabst's 1929 silent movie classic starring Louise Brooks, Pandora's Box
is based on Wedekind's notorious Lulu plays. In a cracked music hall of singing and dancing, where fire-breathing lovers howl at the moon, Lulu dangles her legs over the side of a dark mattress, a cigarette smouldering between the fingers of one hand. Her powdered face is the only bright spot in a dark room and she is smiling. She is waiting for you. Recommended for ages 15+ Contains strong sexual imagery.
