Good early silent from Russia
21 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good early silent one reeler that seems almost documentary like in execution (if somewhat crude) caters to the Russian predilection for tragedy. The simple plot moves quickly and is straight forward so we are able to follow it without any inter-titles.

According to the opening credits actual gypsies were used instead of professional actors but the acting styles are identical with that used in films made in other countries at the time, with the emphasis on broad theatrical gestures.

Unlike most American silents it is shot outdoors and while a bit melodramatic is still more interesting to watch and has more dramatic import than most films from this era.
