Four Around the Woman (German: Vier um die Frau) is a 1921 German silent drama film directed by Fritz Lang and starring Hermann Böttcher, Carola Toelle and Lilli Lohrer.[1] It is also known by the alternative title of Kämpfende Herzen.

The film's sets were designed by the art director Hans Jacoby. It was shot at the Babelsberg Studios. The film premiered at the Marmorhaus in Berlin in February 1921.

Synopsis

Harry Yquem (Ludwig Hartau) is a wealthy realtor. He disguises himself in order to purchase a piece of jewelry for his wife Florence (Carola Toelle) in a criminal cellar from the fence Upton (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) with counterfeit notes. He meets a man in whom he thinks he recognizes a former lover of Florence from before their marriage: it is Werner Krafft (Anton Edthofer) who has returned to the city after years and is looking for his former lover Florence. Since he is penniless, he seeks out his twin brother William Krafft to ask him for money. But William has become a bon vivant and a deceiver.

Yquem thinks William is Werner and therefore has him shadowed by his confidante Meunier (Robert Forster Larrinaga). Finally he passes him a bogus message that Florence allegedly wants to see him and offers him a rendez-vous, whereupon William drives to the Yquem household. Yquem follows him armed, hoping to catch him and his wife. At the same time, however, Meunier approaches Florence on his own initiative and with clear intentions, who is visibly confused.

Werner Krafft has tried in vain to find his brother William. When Werner returns to Upton's basement, he overhears him and his assistant. They have discovered Yquem's fraud with the wrong money and want to kidnap Florence in order to extort the amount owed from Yquem.

Upton and his friend drive to the Yquems estate, Werner Krafft pursues them. The Yquems have a showdown with shootings and a large police presence, in which all secrets are revealed.

Restoration

Long regarded as lost, a film reel in Portuguese was found in 1986 in the Cinemateca Brasileira in São Paulo by the film historian Walther Seidler, an employee of the Kinemathek in Berlin, together with Lang's The Wandering Image, from the estate of a local distributor. After two years of restoration work, it was shown again in 1988 at the Berlinale. The reconstructed copy is 1,618 meters long. The subtitles have been translated back from Portuguese.
