A surprisingly beautiful and simplistically entertaining piece of silent filmmaking. The superb visual direction brings more emotion and investment to this story than I've found in any silent film. 'Sunrise' captivates in the way that the emotion of every scene, no matter what kind (romantic, tragic, humorous, etc.), all resonate with strength and conviction. This is a satifying, sometimes moving, and always entertaining watch that best sums up the silent era.

This kept me in my chair. I couldn't leave it or look away. It's hypnotic and surprising. Silent film. Usually included in "greatest films ever made" lists.

A clear example of brilliant visual directing without the use of sound. There are some images and emotions conveyed in this silent film that still hold up today as exceedingly beautiful and memorable. Also a triumph of early editing to tell a story.

"Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" is my absolute favorite silent movie. The story is, of course, ridiculously fairy-tale like, but what kind of stories do you expect to be told? Murnau is one of the best directors, and probably is the best director of his time. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the greatness of classic film.
