Not the Dreyer you're looking for
- Michael review by VW
If you loved The Passion of Joan of Arc and Vampyr and are hoping this film will be just as good as them then you're in for a disappointment. If you're hoping for a silent gay love story then you'll be disappointed too. This is a pretty run of the mill silent movie with little flair or touches of Dreyer magic. The gay theme is pretty thin too. Yes there's a hint of something sexual between the patron and his protégé but blink and you'll miss it. If it hadn't had the Dreyer name attached this would never have been restored and re-released. I feel it's been somewhat oversold.
