Griffith and Maupassant
3 March 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There isn't much that you can do with Maupassant's work. Either you like him or you don't.

This small offering neither endeared me to Maupassant or Griffith because there was no substance in it that I could take away either as entertainment value or cinematic significance.

The one thing that did strike me whilst watching it was that the 34 year old D.W. Griffith created a vocabulary for making the transition from stage to screen, and then immortalizing oneself in celluloid. This was an inspiration to both Charlie Chaplin and Cecil B. DeMille.

There was a lack of diversity in the story, proving once again that the sin of omission is a uniform utopia.
