Remarks and general Information in German: Friedrich Zelniks Filmversion von Gerhart Hauptmanns Bühnenstück „Die Weber“ ist eine werkgetreue Umsetzung des Dramas und gilt als eine der besten Hauptmann-Adaptionen der deutschen Filmgeschichte. Noch heute wirkt der Film, dessen Bildsprache stark von Eisenstein und Pudowkin beeinflusst ist, durch seine stimmige visuelle Gestaltung (in Zusammenarbeit mit George Grosz) und durch die Mitwirkung exzellenter Schauspieler wie Paul Wegener und Wilhelm Dieterle.
