The Greatest Film Romance - Compass Classroom - Compass Classroom Blog

How do you make the greatest film romance?


In 1927, one of the most famous German filmmakers was given a blank check to make any film he wanted in Hollywood. F.W. Murnau ended up creating a mysterious romance that may be one of the greatest films ever made - and there isn’t one word in it: Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans.

The story is redemptively re-affirming of the power of marriage, even though it begins darkly with the results of an adulterous affair. It clearly shows the impact of sin on a marriage, and how forgiveness and love can redeem even the most difficult of situations.

Our online filmmaking class provides a unique groundwork in learning film through the eyes of the first great directors.  Check out Filmmaking from the First Directors.
