| Propaganda directed towards slaves
This film has nothing at all to do with love but all to do with "Don't p... on me and tell me it's raining". In a society where there is no rich and poor, a society of real love and not the present swinery, this story would be totally impossibe. That a woman can love as selfless as the heroine of this film might be quite possible but in a decent society without rich and poor it would never have to turn out in this sinister way. Instead we are left with a piece of propaganda directed to the poor woman who Believes herself to be hopelessly in love with a swine. This is exactly where the rich want the poor - totally dependant and happy for every Little Crumb that tricles down the rich man's table.
