"La Roue"
1921
Directed by Abel Gance

In its time, this film had such an impact on French filmmakers that Jean Cocteau supposedly began referring to "a cinema before and after La Roue." It is the tragic tale of Sisif (Severin Mars), an engine driver, who saves a girl from a train crash and adopts her, then falls in love with her as she grows up into a beautiful young woman (Ivy Close). He marries her off to a rich railway administrator in an effort to rid himself of temptation and guilt but his torment does not cease. "No film since De Mille's The Cheat, not even L'Herbier's El Dorado, had so stunned the French filmmakers, critics and cinephiles" (Richard Abel, French Cinema). Silent with French titles.   130 minutes.
