    I cannot believe this is not on SilentEra's top 300! What an oversight!!

    A beautiful, moving film. But after setting up a polarity between the immoral man of material promises and the moral man of the life of the spirit, the ending spoiler

    I really really loved this one. What's memorable for me is how natural the acting feels and how palpable the chemistry is between the leads. It made the story so intriguing and believable despite..as others have mentioned, a slightly botched ending by today's standards...but it was 1929 and as whole, it stands its own as a great film. 2 years 2 months ago
