DIE PUPPE (1919)
Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

A phantastic silent movie comedy by famous German director Ernst Lubitsch with an extraordinary contemporary music score by Martin Smolka. Smolka scored it for for ensemble (flute, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, 2 percussions, electric guitar, accordion, violin and double bass.

Because the Baron of Chanterelle wants to preserve his family line, he forces his timid nephew Lancelot to choose one of the village maidens to wed. Lancelot flees to a monastery to escape the forty eager maidens. When the gluttonous monks discover that the Baron is offering a large sum for the marriage, they suggest Lancelot marry a mechanical doll instead. The doll maker has just finished making a replica of his daughter Ossi, but his assistant accidentally breaks it and convinces the real girl to mimic the doll. Lancelot buys her, thinking she is a doll, and takes her back to the monastery, where they are wed.
