...by Gustave Charpentier,so if you like the genre you might like it.If not,you'd better move on.Although it is not entirely sung,the story is not interesting enough to sustain interest: the over possessive parents do not want their daughter Louise to love their neighbor ,a composer who leads a bohemian life with all his friends.It is another experiment by Abel Gance who ,even during his talkies period ,never stopped trying new things.This one has several beautiful pictures but ,by large ,it does not make it.
You'd be better off with Gance's following works: "Paradis Perdu" and "Venus Aveugle"
