Asta Nielsen’s first sound role was her final dramatic film role. In this tragic romance, she plays Vera, a widowed sculptor who falls for a younger man. But will her daughters, and society at large, endorse their relationship? Watch Nielsen triumph in her short-lived transition to sound. Siegfried Kracauer wrote: ‘The language has hardly ever been used in such a cinematic manner.’
