Storyline

Bella is a dancer in a music ball at Butte. She is pretty, light-hearted, and yet possessed of a refined nature that commands a respect not looked for in such surroundings. Strolling through the city park one morning, she steps on an uneven spot in the path and turns her ankle. Her cry of pain brings to her aid Howard Raymond, who assists her to her home. Bella's demure manner and pretty face appeal to Howard, and he realizes it is a case of love at first sight. Bella, herself, is deeply impressed with the young man the accident has caused her to meet. However, she realizes her position and dissipates all serious thoughts on the matter.

A Passive Camera
27 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This 11 minute offering does not arouse any curiosity or provoke any response in the viewer, except boredom. It has no personality, no flavour, no vibe, no attitude. The material is unintrusive, horizontal and lethargic. At no point in the story at all was I invited to engage with the characters. Everything that is wrong with a short film is here in this project. The 35 year old D.W. Griffith does not build up a relationship between his audience and his characters. The story is detached, aloof and distant. There is no intimacy in the film whatsoever, alienating audiences in their seats. It needs interplay between characters, story and audience.
