Broken LullabyBroken Lullaby (1932)

Cast / Credits / Reviews (From the Turner Classic Movies Database)

Broken Lullaby (aka: The Man I Killed), a serious drama, was a real departure for filmmaker Ernst Lubitsch who is best known for his sophisticated, frothy comedies. It was the only serious talkie he ever made and is set in post-WWI Germany, Lubitsch's native country, where a guilt-ridden young French veteran has come to find the family
of a soldier he killed. He wants them to forgive him, and surprisingly, they do.
