People on Sunday (1930)

Directed by Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(Blu-ray, Criterion Collection)

Lackadaisical account of a double date involving a bored taxi driver, his best friend a flirtatious wine salesmen and the two young girls they take to the lake for a picnic one Sunday. The appropriately named Wolf strikes out with the other man's date but takes away his own to a secluded spot where he apparently succeeds. This rather boring day at the lake takes up most of the film, the rest a montage of shots in and around Berlin.
