Mack the Knife - Brecht's Threepenny Film

After the worldwide success of The Threepenny Opera, Bertolt Brecht is unwilling to play by the rules of the film industry when it comes to adapting the material. His idea of the "Threepenny Film" is radical, uncompromising, political and pointed. The film industry is reluctant to accept this. While the battle between London gangster Macheath and the head of the begging mafia Peachum begins to take shape before the author's eyes in his film version of the Threepenny Opera, Brecht seeks a public confrontation.
