A Great Disappointment
9 November 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I have long been a Henny Porten fan. This is a hard to get film. Much of the problem deals with the Misch-Masch plot. The actors do their best in attempting to bring to life a story that defies reason and sense. The movie ends almost mid-sentence leaving the audience, so the director, I suspect, to wonder what happens next: will Henny continue to love and support a liar, a loser, a hopeless addict to gambling. The filming is only mediocre. I could not find out if the film was actually made in Monte Carlo. If not, I commend the seamless back projection work. This is a slow, dreary movie fortunately only 73 minutes long. Stuart Grief swgreif1943@gmail.com
