The idea of a 1913 full length feature film from Denmark intrigued me and I was pleasantly surprised. The melodrama records the events in the life of a somber, but sympathetic researcher, starting in Europe and ending in New York. The sinking of an ocean line, a la Titanic, is well done. The acting is restrained and the plot coherent and interesting. Recommended for silent movie fans.
