One of the supposed masterpieces of the Danish silent screen.
27 June 2007 | by (Chinatown, California) – See all my reviews

Denmark's Atlantis (1913), another ship-sinking story influenced by the Titanic tale and filmed off the coast of New Zealand, was one of the first full-length films ever made - it had a 1 hour, 53 minute running time. This version of the story from director August Blom appeared to sink a full-scale boat for realism. It was a very realistic and naturalistic-looking Titanic film with a well-staged action scene of the ship's sinking. The story is rather simple, despondent over his institutionalized wife, a doctor endeavors to cope by traveling through Europe and eventually to New York, surviving an ocean liner sinking on the way. The film was hailed as an impressive achievement for the cinema of 1913, especially for the sinking liner sequence that was influenced by the Titanic disaster. It was also one of the most popular films of the silent decades, and a worldwide smash hit.
