Part of the problem with "A Fallen Spirit" is that the print is so dark that it really made the film harder to understand. Nevertheless, it STILL would have been a rather incomprehensible film--one that never once appealed to me.
The film was directed by Segundo de Chomón--a man known for using film tricks in most of his films. The problem here is that the film is all tricks and there doesn't appear to be much in the way of story. And, since IMDb doesn't have a summary, I am left wondering what the heck I just saw! In addition, wild overacting (even by 1910's standards) sink this one to the abyss of Segundo de Chomón's work.
By the way, the copy I saw from archive.org bore the Spanish title "Nicholas el Tonto", or, "Nicholas the Idiot"!
