SYNOPSIS

One of the grandest German epics of the silent era, Joe May’s two-part adaptation of Thea von Harbou’s 1918 novel is an artistic triumph.

Conrad Veidt gives an incredible performance as a dominating maharajah who commissions a German architect (Olaf Fønss) to build the most magnificent mausoleum ever constructed, where he intends to imprison his wife whilst she is still alive as a terrible revenge for her infidelity.

Rich in exotic imagery and mysticism, The Indian Tomb is a stunning epic and a thrilling adventure. The Masters of Cinema is proud to present the film across two Blu-ray discs, fully restored in 2K and available for the first time ever in the UK.
