This is make the description, analysis and interpretation of film criticism to the films of Weimar, trying to point out different moments in which these works were present in the interest of critics. We at first, in which critics and movie magazines dedicated themselves to understand the possibilities offered by Caligari and other movies he affiliated, commented in Germany, France, UK and Brazil. After the decline of interest in the artistic experience and after the defeat of Nazism, the same films have renewed their interest in them by the possibility of finding social elements that could help in understanding how the Germans were swallowed by the authoritarian solution. Finally, we have resumed the movement of Weimar film culture in Brazil, from the activity Paulo Emilio and Cinemateca Brasileira, interested in taking forward a strategy of cultural formation of our audience, our critics and filmmakers, from concepts of film culture.
