From the Kinothek Asta Nielsen website:
“A Time Travel to Naples in the 1910s and 1920s: The first Italian director, Elvira Notari (1875-1946), realistically staged the life of the sub-proletariat – especially women – in an environment of passion, with her own production company in lifelike silent films. Jealousy and male violence combine.
Unique cinematic experiences, rare copies, projection of the original versions, live music in world premieres, among others with the singer Lucilla Galeazzi with a commissioned by ZDF/ARTE composition by Michael Riessler, also Dolores Melodia and the silent film musician Maud Nelissen.”
