Good shepherd girl
21 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

It must be the oldest movie I have ever reviewed.A silent short (less than 30 minutes) ,it's one of Maurice Tourneur's first works.

This is the story of a good little shepherd girl .Her master's wife has a love affair with the local aristocrat .The jealous husband bursts in the castle .But the young heroine tells him that in fact she is the count's mistress.The poor girl is thrown out of the house and his fiancé wants to kill her.

Acting,particularly female acting is a bit ridiculous: down on their knees,with their hands together,imploring,etc ,as such was often the case in the silent era.

A good idea in the screenplay: the heroine buys a knife at the fair and tells her squeeze: "if I'm not faithful,do not be afraid to kill me!" No less.
