Storyline

In the Crimea, the Reds and the Whites aren't done fighting, and Jeanne discovers that the man she loves is a Bolshevik (when he kills her father). Penniless, she returns to Paris where she works for her uncle. Soon after, her lover Andreas is in France to organize the sailors in Toulon. So also is a thief, traitor, and libertine, Khalibiev, who wants to seduce Jeanne. His schemes, Jeanne and Andreas's naivete, and a lost diamond bring the lovers to the brink of tragedy.

Absorbing, fascinating work of art, beautifully directed/photographed

I am not a fan of G.W. Pabst. Having seen three other films of his (JOYLESS STREET, THREEPENNY OPERA, PANDORA'S BOX) and not liking anything about any of them, I was wary in approaching JEANNE NEY. However, I was hooked from the first reel.

This is a tightly and brilliantly directed melodrama about love, lust and thievery. The characters are fascinating and Pabst keeps us riveted to our seats as their stories unfold. The cinematography is exceptional - Oscar-worthy - as is Pabst's direction.

Truly a fine example of state of the art silent cinema just teetering on the edge of sound.

Fritz Rasp is the only bad note - a hideous man with a penchant for terrible overacting, while all around him are acting in a naturalistic manner.

Edith Jehanne is luminous in the lead but one wonders what Garbo would have brought to the role had she not headed for the USA after working with Pabst in JOYLESS STREET.

Don't miss this one.
