A vivid, painterly study of an impulsive and fragile marriage set among the wheatfields of Minnesota. Tenderly romantic and tough-minded in equal measure, ’City Girl’ is one of cinema’s great pastorals, featuring some of the most delicate performances Murnau ever filmed and influencing directors such as Terrence Malick and Jean Vigo.

"A lyrical masterwork of pastoral realism." (Philip French, The Guardian)

"City Girl is a visionary work of the late silent cinema." (Senses of Cinema)

"City Girl looks brilliant, the film is truly a joy to watch in high definition. Highly recommended."
