A poem to love & patriotism soon after the end of WWI. A highly original and poetic film using many experimental camera techniques, which proved too fanciful for many but which established his reputation as a talented innovator. This is the director's debut film and it is considered the second impressionist film, the first being Abel Gance's, 1918, La Dixième symphonie (The Tenth Symphony).
