Storyline

Agnes, a singer in a country church, is practicing one day when a vaudeville manager hears her and offers her a job. Over the objections of the curate who loves her, she accepts the offer and goes to the city. Later the curate goes to hear Agnes perform and, fearing that her soul is being corrupted by show business, he asks her to return to the small town with him. When she refuses, he is prepared to kill her in order to protect the purity of her soul. This brings about her change of heart, and together they return to the little church. Written by Anonymous

Lack of Polish
21 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Because cinema began as a silent medium you didn't need to judge it on dialogue. Therefore, you could watch this short film with the sound turned down on your television set and be able to understand what is taking place just by the visual narrative. Usually, it is within the first ten minutes of a film that the story is established, but because this project only lasted for 11 minutes, you needed to be assimilated into the story within the first minute. Unfortunately, the 34 year old D.W. Griffith failed to sway me. I deliberately watched this without the sound and was bored to tears within the opening moments. I didn't care about the characters, and the story just wasn't my cup of tea.
