Augusto Genina France, 1930

josé neves's rating of the film Miss Europe

Starts like "Menschen am Sonntag" or "The Crowd" and ends like a Mann or a Dassin "noir", with the projection of the myth in and out of the diegetic universe. Although seen on a silent copy, its imagistic power is so dense that the absence of sound didn't bother me that much, with the exception of the final sequence. Louise Brooks was The Woman in cinematic figurative imaginary.
