Sublime, sick, extreme, obvious in the form but not in the themes -well, it would be so difficult- of desiring the adopted daughter and loving the tragic son
View all The Wheel reviews
Sisif, a railwayman, and his son Elie fall in love with the beautiful Norma (who Sisif rescued from a train crash when a baby and raised as his daughter), with tragic results. Originally running nine hours, this epic tragedy is notable for the way it foreshadows Gance's later 'Napoleon' in its use of innovative cinematic devices, particularly rapid cutting.
Release date: 17 February 1923

"18.2. Neljä ja puoli tuntia pitkässä megaelokuvassa kasvavissa määrin alkoholisoituva veturinkuljettaja nappaa junaturmasta selvinneen pikkutytön omaan perheeseensä. Tytön kasvettua aikuiseksi alkaa isäpapalle tulla vähän woodyallenia, mutta rakkautta häiritsee se, että kaikki muutkin rakastuvat tyttöön. Rakkaustarina tarjoilee melkoista melodraamailua, mutta loppujen lopuksi elokuva keskittyykin kuvaamaan elämän epäonnistumia melkoisen pessimistiseen tyyliin sen sijaan, että"
