  • pepoire's rating of the film In the Storm of Life

    PLS NOTE these 3 stars are out of profound love for Asta Nielsen and her costume selections and face and hair and radiant presence. And the studio set, which is lovely. But! The pacing drraagggs, and the story... Asta cheats on ancient hubby w someone even less appealing, and her decisions only become more incomprehensible from there on, based on a moral logic that can't have made more sense in 1919 than it does now.
