A House Divided (1913)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A young husband and wife thinks the other is cheating on them so their lawyer makes them agree to live in the same house, appear to be "together" but in reality they are separated. The only way the two of them can communicate is by writing letters and soon they start to see something in each other that they never noticed. A HOUSE DIVIDED has a pretty simple and at times stupid story but director Alice Guy-Blache makes it worth. I'm really not sure how because it's unclear why a lawyer would recommend this considering he would make more money off of them getting a divorce but I guess that's putting too much thought into it. For the most part this is a pretty simple tale and it kept me entertained throughout thanks in large part to the director. Guy-Blache manages to make the film move at a very good pace and it never got boring, which is always a good thing. Both Fraunie Fraunholz and Marian Swayne are good in their roles as the husband and wife. The two manage to work quite well together and come across as a real couple.
