Storyline

An old German mine was split in two after the end of WWI because of where the new border was located. In the French part a fire breaks out; the German miners send a rescue group in, helping their French comrades. Three old German miners, who were not treated friendly at a French inn the night before, start their own private rescue through an old tunnel that separated the two mines. Will the official rescue party realize there are others left behind in time to save them? Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>; A.Nonymous

Trivia

Because the dialogue in Kameradschaft was spoken in the two languages of the French and German participants, without subtitles, when it came time to release the film in Paris, instead of, as frequent in the early sound era, shooting a separate language version the editor chose alternate takes of each shot to form a slightly different print, shortening and lengthening several scenes in the process.

Brilliant...
11 December 2006 | by jrichmon-2See all my reviews

Valliant effort to use a mining catastrophe as a vehicle to pronounce this director's distaste for war. The audience not only learns a great deal about early mining rescue procedures but, we learn that Europeans at the interval between WWI and WWII, had concerning pacifists(for lack of a better term). The speeches given by both representatives of each country at the end of the film, are inspiring given the time. Although the revised edition, through the transfer technology of early foreign films, "cuts-off characters heads" at times, this film holds it's own in many different aspects. Character analysis, lighting techniques, historical content and a scenario that has tested and inspired many a writer and filmmaker.

Pabst went on to Direct and put to screen Weil & Brecht's "Three Penny Opera", starring the original star, Lotte Lenya.
