Based on the 1929 novel by Alfred Doblin, previously filmed in 1931, directed by Phil Jutzi. Despite taking place over 14 parts, with a runtime of 15 and a half hours, the film received a theatrical release in the US in 1983, with theatres showing two or three parts per night, and the series gained a cult following, leading to PBS broadcasts and a VHS release.
