Harakiri (1919)
Harakiri (1919) Poster

*** out of 5
Early Fritz Lang silent film, more interesting from that aspect than for its actual content, which is a variation of the Madam Butterfly story. Interesting comparisons could also be draw between this and The Squaw Man (which Cecil B DeMille made 3 times) as both have quite similar themes, plots and endings, and combined make an interesting reflection of racial attitudes of the time.
