Il Giardino della Fame
Born as Friedrich Wilhelm Plumpe in Bielefeld, Province of Westphalia, 28 December 1888. He studied art history in the Heidelberg University. He was a combat pilot during the Great War. He is, probably, the most genial and influential film director of the expressionist movement.
His masterpiece is Nosferatu (1922) an adaption of the famous Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Murnau emigrated to U.S.A. in 1926, but someone says he returned to Berlin in 1929 to shoot a mysterious and probably lost movie called Ankläger.
