The essence of poetic fancy
12 December 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A sentimental photoplay, offering suggestions in telepathy which are interesting, if they are largely improbable. That the song of a blind girl should be wafted across the seas and be caught up by the soul of a violinist is of the essence of poetic fancy. And later, when the violinist pursues this phantom and finds the girl seated on the shore still singing, they seem created for one another. It is one of the most poetic picture plays ever put on the screen, but there is a fascination about it which holds the attention all through, and when it disappears the audience scarcely realizes that it is no longer in the realm of fancy. The shock upon the return to practical is one of the attractive features of the film. - The Moving Picture World, April 1, 1911
