Synopsis:

Jean Mihail’s silent masterpiece is set in a small town in Eastern Romania at the turn of the 20th century and features a tender love story between a Romanian man and a Jewish woman. Strikingly presenting the theme of religious intolerance throughout, the film is powerfully dramatic and visually remarkable.
