Lulu (Asta Nielsen) is a desperate seductress, always looking for new victims of her passion.
24 May 2005 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

The wonderful Asta Nielsen in a fabulous film where she demonstrates her great talent. This film is both tragic, dramatic and (un)intentionally humorous. It is amazing how much the silent films still have left to tell us. Asta brings this film up to a very high level, her gestures and elegant moves make the whole difference. Just to watch her hands is a joy. Something special about this film is the fabulous set design. There are oversize flowers, i.e. a three meters tall lily, and the costumes are both glamorous and funny. This film is basically a great example of how much you can tell with very few tools. By the way, I watched the film with dutch text (I do not speak dutch!), but still, the point was clear.
