Daïnah la métisse Regisserad av Jean Grémillon
It’s a stunningly shot drama of a black couple traveling on a swanky French liner. Recut after production for reasons not altogether clear, it still retains enormous power. . . . The film’s bold use of sound–a song track, pulsing engine noises, and passages of dead silence–remind us of how adventurous early talkies could be.

The percussive jazz rhythms and black dancers—including a soloist in top hat and tails doing a hip-swiveling Afro-Latin number—are background here, but in Daïnah la métisse(1932) jazz and racial themes pervade the entire film. An intoxicating, stylized sketch (only fifty minutes long), Daïnah is more like a song than a drama.

A rather glorious curiosity, Jean Grémillon’s DAÏNAH LA MÉTISSE straddles the line between 1920s French Impressionism and 1930s French Poetic Realism. It has an otherworldly, dreamlike quality that draws from both traditions — a quality underscored by its hermetic setting aboard an ocean liner. It also straddles the line between silent and sound eras of cinema, mixing sophisticated and expressive visuals with awkward (but fascinating) sync sound sequences.
