Almost impossible to suggest any improvement
18 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A veritable film d'art. A thrilling and intensely dramatic representation of what has been termed by competent critics to be Alexander Dumas' son's masterpiece, Camille. The story of the unfortunate Marguerite Gautier and her unhappy lover, Armand Duval, graphically represented and dramatically acted, as the finished actors of the Pathes company always do act. It is unnecessary to repeat the story. It would seem that one so popular in novel, drama and opera would be sufficiently well understood to preclude the necessity for repetition. Criticism of such a popular and well-known drama seems scarcely necessary, and that is especially true in this instance, because it seems almost impossible to suggest any improvement. The setting and staging are alike sumptuous and the figures move across the screen like actual persons. After seeing the picture one seems to become acquainted with them and they are individual entities which will live with one as long as memory lasts. In many respects this seems to rank among the leading films the Pathes have produced. Perhaps the play is not up to the standard of some of those produced in the past, but even though this may be true, the picture has most of the attributes of greatness and deserves to be included in the comparatively small number that are reckoned among the leaders in the motion picture world. - The Moving Picture World, January 22, 1910
