Wow! We are seeing Gance inventing the cinema before our eyes! This is far ahead of its time, seems like it was made during the peak of silent cinema. He focuses on light, movement, stillness. Great emotional storytelling that approaches his later masterpiece la roue. Later war melodramas like say, All Quiet on the Western Front, really don't add much of anything. Gance was truly an innovative genius.
Like La roue from the same director, the visuals and editing are top notch. And the acting is very good, too. Highly recommended.
