Salambo (1914) DVD-R

Quick Overview


Egidio Candiani, Suzanne De Labroy, Mario Guaita-Ausonia, Cristina Ruspoli


Directed by Domenico Gaido


Print: Black and White

Language: Italian



Once it settles down to a visible storyline, it's pretty good and the magic of silent cinema finally takes hold but it's still a mess of sorts. Unlike CABIRIA, you can't really identify or empathize with any of the characters here. They're more like figures or shadows moving across the screen than characters. There are things that happen to the characters and I'm not quite sure why. No intertitle or dialogue telling us what just happened. There are some close-ups but they are rare. I think the first close-up within the story itself occurs 40 minutes mark. There are some close-ups of the actors at the beginning but those are there just to introduce the name of characters.
