Storyline

Paul and Virginia are two young lovers who have grown up together from babyhood. Their widowed mothers live near each other in rude cottages, on an island in the Indies, on which there are few inhabitants. Here the children are reared, knowing no play-fellows but each other. When Virginia is sixteen years of age, her mother receive a letter from a wealthy aunt in Paris, who offers to make Virginia her heir and give her a good education, providing Virginia will, in the future, make her aunt's home her own. Virginia's mother, having lost her own fortune through marrying against the will of her family, feels that she must not let her daughter suffer the poverty that she has been compelled to endure. She accordingly insists upon Virginia's acceptance of her wealthy relative's offer. Virginia thereupon sets sail for France, leaving Paul brokenhearted at her departure.

Every scene is interesting
28 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

If the author who wrote this popular classic had done his work with photoplav reproduction in prospect he couldn't have done better. A classic tale, it makes a picture destined to be quite as popular as the story itself. There is no use in repeating the story. Everybody who has read at all knows the story of Paul and Virginia. If, perchance, there be a few in the audience who have never read it, the film will make it clear. Every scene is interesting, from the time when Paul and Virginia are disclosed as children until Virginia, disowned by her wealthy aunt, sails to meet Paul again and drowns in sight of land. The picture holds the attention, even as the story holds it. The producer has performed his part with thorough knowledge of the requirements and has worked out the problems with sympathy. The picture is clear, and whoso sees it will mourn with Paul over the dead Virginia. The emotions will be deeply stirred by the direct and simple story, founded upon the basis of love. - The Moving Picture World, November 26, 1910
