An attractive woman from the city, on vacation, stays in a small farming community and dazzles a young married farmer. The wicked woman suggests that the man's deceptively dowdy-looking wife might "accidentally" drown. Can he, will he go through with it? The scene changes; in unexpected company, the man gets a kaleidoscopic taste of what the actual city is like. The dramatic climax comes in a fearsome storm and its aftermath..

Still, I have to admit that I was ” read more

"“I love how the two leading ladies are so brilliantly juxtaposed. You have the dark jezebel, the city woman who very provocative clothing…, and then you have this beautiful, delicate porcelain doll in Janet Gaynor…. This is the perfect gateway into .” - Drew Barrymore “If anybody wants to see what a silent film is like, they really should watch this one. Because it’s a great beginning to see how powerful a film can be without words…. You never quite know where it’s going. It do"

2020: Others (340 movies items)

"Un dramma recitato qua e là in modo accentuato, una struttura rigida (tragedia/commedia/tragedia) e una storia esile che nella sezione della città vissuta come Paese dei Balocchi diventa quasi impalpabile: va tutto bene, non importa, questo è un film emozionante e meraviglioso. Basterebbe solo il piano-sequenza dell'Uomo che raggiunge la Donna di Città per l'appuntamento da cui la vicenda prende le mosse: il gioco delle immagini sovrapposte e gli intertitoli quasi assenti (quei pochi che ci "
