Storyline

Helene de la Croix, an aristocrat of a proud and passionate disposition, has been brought up to look upon the peasants as little more than cattle. Bernard, a blacksmith, conceives a passion for her. She is storm stayed in an old hunting lodge, which is struck by lightning, and Bernard rescues her from the burning building. Her castle is besieged by the Revolutionary soldiers. Bernard, now a sergeant in the army, pleads for her, renounces his allegiance to the Republic, espouses her cause, and chooses death with her rather than freedom without her.

Everyone can understand human passion
5 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An elaborate picture, the scenes of which are laid in France during the contest between the classes and the masses; it tells the love story of a countess and a man of the people, ending in their journey to the guillotine together. As a vehicle for conveying the impression of intense human passion this picture has an interest which might not otherwise attach to it. This disturbance in France, which had such remarkable influence upon the world, is really little understood by the people of this country and episodes taken from it are somewhat blind in their allusions. Everyone can understand human passion, but the differences which exist between various classes of society as represented here are not always so plain. The staging is sumptuous and the acting reaches heights of dramatic power in places. - The Moving Picture World, April 15, 1911
