Dominik Graf’s new film Fabian: Going to the Dogs, adapted from the classic Weimar Era novel and winner of three German Film Awards, opens February 11 at Metrograph in New York.

Berlin, 1931. Jakob Fabian works in the advertising department of a cigarette factory by day and drifts through bars, brothels and artist studios with his wealthy and debauched friend Labude by night. When Fabian meets the beautiful and confident Cornelia, he manages to shed his pessimistic attitude for a brief moment and falls in love. Not long after, he falls victim to the great wave of layoffs sweeping the city, plunging him back into a depression, while Cornelia’s career as an actress is taking off thanks to her wealthy boss and admirer – an arrangement that Fabian finds difficult to accept. But it’s not just his world that is falling apart; all of Germany is about to self-destruct. Directed by Dominik Graf (Beloved Sisters), this dazzling adaptation of Erich Kästner’s classic of Weimar literature won three German Film Awards and is set amid the twilight hedonism of pre-Nazi Germany.
