7th Heaven (1927) - part1- Frank Borzage
Seventh Heaven by Frank Borzage is one of the most moving silent movie i have ever seen. The love story between Diane & Chico is pure melodramatic. Simple and powerful. Love over fate or whatever. I don't know how to write so i won't make a fool of myself. Read real critics instead. I can only be sensitive about movies. Don't know and don't want to know how to "intellectualize" them.
Look at Janet Gaynor. how she is radiating in this frame !!
Most of people know her from Murnau's Sunrise but i think she never was as wistfully beautiful than in Borzage's movies. and she's done several. We'll talk about this later.
You have to see the movie to understand how magical this sentence could be :
"You are an extraordinary person".
This was the first 12 frames i'll post of this movie.
Next time you'll see the last 12.
In the meantime, any comments will be appreciated.
