As a young couple stops and rests in a small village inn, the man is abducted by Death and is sequestered behind a huge doorless, windowless wall. The woman finds a mystic entrance and is met by Death, who tells her three separate stories set in exotic locales, all involving circumstances similar to hers. In each story, a woman, trying to save her lover from his ultimate tragic fate, fails. The young lady realizes the meaning of the tales and takes the only step she can to reunite herself with her lover.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: June (27 movies items)

"First viewing - June 24th After dinner I realized I haven't watched anything made prior to my birth this month, and this is one of the few films in my queue that fit the bill. Plus it's Fritz Lang, so I knew it'd be worth a look. And the film was definitely interesting, as it visits different countries so we get a look at Carnival, Ramadan, and a Chinese emperor's birthday along the way. The authenticity of these moments is questionable at times, but I can imagine audiences back then being swep"
