A landmark epic!,
This review is from: Intolerance [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This film is the original epic! The theme of mother love is evident in all four stories that make up this wonderful, massive motion picture. Intolerance set the standards for filmmaking back in 1916 and it's easy to see why. The four stories, each taking place during a different period, are brought together by the image of a mother rocking a craddle, a symbol of eternal love.
The Babylonian festival scene, with its aerial shot, is a landmark in cinematography.
