Storyline

In the French provincial town of Vivonne, Jean Leonnec, the son of Mayor Hugo Leonnec, and Marise La Noue, the daughter of a cobbler, were childhood sweethearts, they who are largely oblivious to anything or anyone else around them when they are together in their continued love for each other. His father does not approve of the relationship because of their class differences. When her father passes away leaving her impoverished, Jean and Marise decide to run off to Paris together and get married against his father's wishes. Once in Paris, they are separated out of circumstance, each believing their separation the result of a different reason which may or may not be reality. In addition to searching for each other, they have to survive in unfamiliar surroundings. Beyond actually finding each other, they getting together again as a couple may be affected by their individual experiences in Paris, which fundamentally changes each as a person. Written by Huggo

Wonderful
20 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

I adore this film. It's touching right to the heart. It was on the AMC channel one night and I happened to catch it. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the film kept my attention, regardless to the fact that it was silent. Usually, silent films tend to be boring at points, if you aren't use to them, but not this one. It was well written, and the music goes perfectly with the story. I have never seen a better silent film (yet, if there is one?). But I would advise that the plot isn't a light-hearted one , and although it has its romantic moments, I see this movie as more of a film for a rainy day, rather than for a date night, etc. But if you haven't seen this film, I strongly recommend it, even if you're not the silent film "type".
