Germany 1929
Dir Vladimir Strizhevsky
With Ivan Mozzhukhin, Carmen Boni, Eugen Burg, Alexander Granach
98min
Digital
Certificate U
With live piano accompaniment by Meg Morley

Half screwball, half melodrama, this vehicle for the silent era’s greatest romantic lead, Ivan Mozzhukhin (sorry Rudolph) makes full use of those soulful, penetrating eyes. The lighter-than-air romance between a Czarist officer and a passport-less girl obliged to share a sleeper compartment on a train is tested when revolutionary zeal meets implacable loyalty in the heightened atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Russia.
