The Last Laugh/Der letzte Mann

The Last Laugh (German: Der letzte Mann) is a German 1924 silent film directed by German director F. W. Murnau from a screenplay written by Carl Mayer which was based on a Broadway play by Charles W. Goddard. It is the most famous example of the short-lived Kammerspiel or "chamber-drama" genre.
In 2000, it was added to Roger Ebert's list of Great Movies

and since I think the title card is in Portugese (?) here’s a translation
"Here the story should really end, for, in real life, the forlorn old man would have little to look forward to but death. The author took pity on him and has provided a quite improbable epilogue.”
