Storyline

Venice, what emotions it awakens in the Young Stranger as he reads about it in his book. He decides to pay this beautiful city a visit. Upon his arrival, he walks from the railroad station to the landing place on the Grand Canal. There the crowd watches him with amusement as he blunderingly makes his way. Pitrello, a hotel tout, sees in the awkward Young Stranger a likely mark. He seizes his baggage, hurries him into a gondola and conducts him through a network of canals and bridges to the hotel. In the meantime, the Bridegroom, a rich wine merchant, is escorting his young Bride to the church where they are to be married. She is unutterably sad because her heart is elsewhere.

The German silent film running up to speed
5 November 2016 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Very Pordenone silent film week.

What we get is a curiosity - early days attempt at film direction by Reinhardt, whose major contribution to the movies will be in the influence he had on associates who went on to glory in Berlin and Hollywood.

This one features rhythmic miming characters acting out what may be a dream of the overnight stay at the Venetian canal side hotel.

Not the easiest film to follow and lacking any striking innovation.

We might have hoped for more with Alfred Abel (the father from METROPOLIS)and cameraman Freund on hand.
