Only a 'completer' for those interested in Mauritz Stiller
Famous and well off artist and sculptor Claude Zoret adopts model and talented artist Eugene Mikael as his son. (The homosexual connection in the novel seems to be ignored in this filming). However, Mikael becomes interested in Princess Lucia de Zamikow and they live a dissipated life at Zoret's expense, much to Zoret's displeasure.
The main interest to me were the costumes and sets.
The 50 minute print is a restoration, substituting titles and stills for the missing scenes.
Also filmed by Carl Theodor Dreyer as Mikaël (1924).
