Italian futurism it is ... NOT !
2 November 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Right, so the director is a famous futurist photographer. Google his name and go see some superb pictures. But his film here, isn't much of Italian Futurism. Classical story from a 19th century novel, and the feature relies way much on intertitles. Our protagonist, the libertarian Thais, lives in a studio made up of abstract stuff, with a suicide chamber she made herself (good old 1890s!). Those backgrounds we see for a couple of minutes are the main interest of the film, and are all that is modern in the picture. Pretty much like Caligari (1920), the kind of picture that could have been a theater play, the usual fare of the days back then. I thought that the fact the director was a noted photographer could bring up interesting stuff. It turns out there's some interesting shots toward the finale, but otherwise you wouldn't want to look at this one except for historical purposes.

Bragaglia apparently wrote a manifesto of futurist cinema in 1916. I wonder if the picture followed the manifesto, and what's inside it.

For some reasons, the version I saw was in french. It's a good thing since I can read that, but the film must be Italian.
