I liked this a bit more than Pandora's Box, it's more fun. Those Kurt Weill tunes are terrific, I love the sort of freewheeling creakiness they seem to have. The whole thing is very evocative of a specific time and place (although the place is somehow both German and British). Very enjoyable performances from all involved, and some impressive camerawork. A light-hearted story with a cynical edge.

Kapitalist sistemi, "al gülüm-ver gülüm"lerini perdeye yansıtmada başarılı. Ama bunu yaparken işçi sınıfını simgeleyen dilencileri biraz arka planda bırakıyor. Brecht'in oyunun da bu durum daha farklı olabilir.

A couple of the transitions into the songs are awkward, but the pacing is so wonderfully set so that the film is constantly entertaining and doesn't feel at all like a near two hour film. The songs themselves (Particularly "Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny") are just flat out entertaining
