Dir. Marie Harder (1930).
In this admirably straightforward (and hitherto unknown) example of Weimar cinema’s New Objectivity, a middle-aged payroll clerk [lohnbuchhalter] loses his job and, unable to find another, descends into despair. The director Marie Harder was a distributor of leftist films.
