“ 9/10
Surreal and evocative silent horror by Jean Epstein - one of the most influential exponents of French Avant-garde - who drew inspiration for this from some Edgar Allan Poe's short stories. Mesmerizing aesthetic work, pervaded by spooky and oneiric atmospheres and a sense of oppressive anxiety, due to the frequent use of close-ups, slow motions, superimposed images, light games and other particular techniques that distort the bodies of characters and move the objects present in the film without touching them. Warmly recommended if you are into silent and/or experimental cinema. ” - Caltiki05
