"La Femme De Nullle Part" (1922) By Louis Delluc

Things are not well with a young couple who live, together with their little child, in a villa near Genoa. The wife has a secret lover and while her husband is visiting the city on business, she is visited by a woman-a distant relative-who once lived in the same villa. The mysterious woman shares her memories with the wife and gives her somewhat contradictory advice about how to deal with her complicated love life.

"La Femme De Nulle Part" (1922) ( The Woman From Nowhere ) is confirmation of the great and refined film style that can be seen in the films of Herr Louis Delluc. Alas, there are very few such films as the great French film director died very young.

On this occasion, Herr Delluc constructs an exemplary oeuvre of early silent virtuosity, typical of his exceptional work. "La Femme De Nulle Part" has a strong and imaginative film narrative wherein Herr Delluc uses numerous flashbacks to represent the different points of view of the three main characters. The mysterious woman's flashbacks illustrate the good times she had in the villa many years before. The wife of course must deal with her own adultery and we are also shown the doubts and sorrow of the husband away in Genoa on his business trip.

The film is about loss and missed opportunities and skilfully uses outdoor scenery to help create an atmosphere of larger than life romance. Frau Ève Francis as the woman from nowhere gives an appropriate performance under the supervision of Herr Delluc, her husband.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count must get to know an unknown Teutonic rich heiress.
