The Seaside hotel

Ubekendt, 1915, 8 min

FRAGMENT | When Gregoire and Lola go on a beach holiday to the idyllic Skagen, they don't know yet that the trip will be the end of their marriage. Gregoire may be wealthy, but he is many years older and several pounds heavier than his young wife, who's beauty makes all the male holiday guests turn their necks. Baron Plessen falls in love with Lola, and she quickly gets fond of the idea of replacing her corpulent husband with a handsome nobleman. Together, they plan to push Gregoire out of the picture.
