Ernst Lubitsch was one of the great masters of cinema - and his silent films are every bit as good as his talkies.
ETERNAL LOVE is one of the most passionate and moving love stories I have ever seen - with an ending that made me gasp.
John Barrymore gives one of his best ever performances here, and I now understand why he was considered such a matinee idol. Camilla Horn is also extraordinary, and possesses a rare and fragile beauty. In fact all the performances are great.
Silent films convey the passion of love so much more convincingly than most talkies. Somehow words often make this sort of intense passion comical on the screen. But here, with a divine original music score, the love is magical. Lubitsch had his "touch" in drama as much as in comedy. SEE THIS FILM!!!
