love story in Britanny
Not an Abel Gance masterpiece, but very entertaining (especially with Saturnin Fabre and Pauline Carton). The love story with its family secret is nothing original, but there are some true interesting visual sequences as usual with Abel Gance. And I just loved the britain settings in Elven, Le Faouët, Carnac, with peasants silhouettes.
