From the Depths of the City

Carl Alstrup, 1910, 31 min
A wealthy estate-owner travels to Copenhagen to experience what life is like in the city. Once there, he happens upon the beautiful young Clara and her brother, who take him to various pubs, to the Copenhagen Zoo, the airport and Tivoli Gardens. However, it comes to light that Charles is not Clara’s brother, but rather her fiancé, and that they are two of the city’s most notorious con-artists. The naïve estate-owner’s blood alcohol content is unfortunately already sky high, and it’s only at this point he realises who he is in the company of.

In the scene at the airport, the famous pilot Alfred Nervø (1879-1921) can be seen starting his plane.

The film has Danish intertitles.
