Impressive French film from the teens.
2 November 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

We get the impression that the french Cinema hit its peak in the WW1 period with Feuillade and this film representing a more serious line.

The plot is a far-fetched account of his past sins catching up with the prosecutor but the performances and the use of genuine Paris exteriors, Jardin du Luxembourg, Seine transport, many of them unchanged to the present are ahead of most of what was being done at the time.

Interesting to find VIEILLE DAME INDIGNE Sylvie appearing as a teen age ingénue.

The presence of Julien Duvivier on the credits also intrigues.

It survives in a reasonable Cinematheque Francaise 35mm. copy.
