Veidt is great, sets are great, some scattered sequences are great (like escaping the scene of the Caliph's murder, the finale). Generally, I am not into these trans-historical anthology films and overall this is no exception.

Seems like the only idea behind this was to have some arresting visuals following this fantasy anthology, and also maybe the casting of the stars as sideshows for each one. Watchable.

It's a German Expressionist silent, which is always cool, but besides the rich visual style it doesn't have a whole lot going for it. Not that any of it is bad, the stories are enjoyable enough and there hardly a dull moment, but I'd like more than that.

Excellent acting and set design doesn't save this anthology from being 3 stories that at best drag on a little to long or at worst are near sleep inducing.

Successful for the most part, but some of the segments drag just a bit. But I really enjoyed watching the interpretations of some historical figures. The direction and set design is also impressive, and as always Conrad Veidt is great.

Considered a lesser expressionist film it still has plenty to offer. Story isn't very interesting, more like a three simple short tales. But the film really shines in detailed expressionistic set design and cutting-edge (for that time) filming techniques like super exposure, shadow lightning effects or distorted lens that still looks great even today. Conrad Veidt gives haunting and unforgettable performance as Ivan the Terrible.

Kinda boring compared to the other Leni films I've seen. Nothing much special at all about this one, but it wasn't bad.
