Synopsis

In a strange world not unlike our own, a beautiful opera singer draws important men to her like moths to a flame, basking in the attention of her admirers. Among them is a young scientist. When she mocks him, he leaves her house with the declared intention to kill himself…

Our take

Never stop hunting, because you don’t know what you’ll find. This little-known masterwork, rescued from the flames and now in gorgeous HD, is a high-water mark of silent cinema: a melodrama with sci-fi flavor, a visual tour-de-force, and a shockingly advanced work of modern art.
