Pouring coins, banknotes flying rain.

Kolosalnoe figures with many bullets.

Mount money which instantly increases.

Mountains of money.

Those exhausted by poverty and deprivation.

Thick bourgeois speculator.

Man reading the newspaper on the street, his face changing from fear.

He takes off his hat and begins to beg.


Rabid speculators.

Scavenger sweeps away money from the floor as the filth.

The finale of the film, the collapse of a huge building: a symbol of the collapse of the German economy

Key words

Germany, the money, the press, the stock exchange
