Storyline

The innkeeper's daughter is in love, but her mother has already decided that she is going to be married to another man. Raymond, the young woman's fiancé, is devastated. After a few expository scenes, this extremely simple plot becomes fragmented into two mirror-like flashbacks, shown in split-screen: she dreams of her past happiness with her beloved, embracing her during a boat excursion on a pond, he has a nightmare where she is seen embracing the other man. Raymond loses his mind and repudiates the innocent woman, she commits suicide. Written by Anonymous

Money can't buy me love
24 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

A tragic melodrama by Louis Feuillade:Suzanne is in love with a poor young man;but her mother has higher ambitions and wants her to marry a nouveau riche who owns a castle .She obeys her mum but soon her husband dies and his last will is harsh: should she marry again again,she would lose all the dead's fortune.What shall she do?

There are two mini "split screens":when Suzanne is in her castle,half of the picture shows her boating on the river with her former sweetheart;then ,later ,when she meets the boy by the river ,memories come back to haunt the ex-fiancé : he sees her walking along the riverside with her beau.

Money can't buy happiness.Or can it?
