Production and reception
The Unknown Tomorrow was the first film made by Korda in Germany, after he had left Austria following the failure of Samson and Delilah. The film was a financial success, and Korda used his share of the profits to buy a stake in the film distribution company FIHAG.
Werner Krauss's performance has been noted for its expressionist acting, even though much of the rest of the film is non-expressionist.
A wife is wrongly believed of adultery by her husband who leaves her. She then struggles to prove her innocence and win him back while foiling the machinations of an admirer of hers who wishes to keep her apart from her husband.
