Le Nain (1912)

France 14m, B&W, Silent
Director: Louis Feuillade; Cast: Paul Dancourt, Renée Carl, Suzanne Grandais, Lina Béryl, Marthe Vinot

le_nainThe Dwarf is well-made melodrama that is both engaging because of its unusual subject matter, and strange for its unexpected conclusion. The story centers around the experience of a little person who is depicted as the anonymous author of a play that becomes a critical and commercial success. Remaining anonymous, the author pursues a long distance relationship with the female star of the show. Wishing to meet her author, the actress surreptitiously discovers his address and proceeds to surprise him with a visit. The brief events which unfold at their meeting are strange indeed, making one wonder what Feuillade had against little people? (Klaus Ming January 2016).
