The godfather of pre-revolutionary Russian film, Yevgeni Bauer, brought all his powers to bear on this haunting melodrama. Documenting a love triangle between two sisters and a dashing prince, Life for a Life demonstrates Bauer’s mastery of production design and his interest in complex female figures – aided here by a stirring performance from Vera Kholodnaya, “Russia’s first movie star”. An invaluable document of a lost cinematic era, presented with an original score composed and performed by Juliet Merchant.
