"End of the World"
Directed by Abel Gance
Francen announces to the world the arrival of a comet which will strike
and destroy the earth in 30 days in this rarest of all finds, Abel Gance's
lost science fiction epic La Fin du Monde. Unfortunately the
original film, running 105 minutes, has been cut to 54 minutes by the U.S.
distributor and a silly prologue has been added. But Gance's ending
montage of distortion and destruction of the world is nothing short of
dazzling. French with English subtitles. 54 minutes.
