This movie seems to be quite a rare one; I gather it was found in a private collection somewhere in Brazil. The version I saw has Portuguese titles, but English subtitles can also be found.
At first you will have a feeling that there is something missing, but more or less everything will become clear later. Not explaining everything at once, Lang succeeds in emphasizing the frenzy in which we find the heroine, running away from the mysterious man.
Perhaps the movie should have been made longer, especially in the flashback part, but I guess Lang wanted to make a thriller, not a drama. However, Wikipedia says that the movie is partially lost, so we will never know what it was like in the original version.
I guess that anyone who likes silent movies must like this one too. After all, Fritz Lang was probably the only director who managed to be great both in silent and talking movies.
