Fatal Delusions

Fritz Magnussen, 1918,
MOST WANTED | The film is a graduation piece shot in 1918 upon completing a course at the first Danish film school. The cast includes teachers and students from the school. What did a graduation film look like in 1918? Were students required to demonstrate their mastery of specific cinematic techniques and devices? We are incredibly curious to see more!


WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
The film is set around a bar known as ‘Røde Mølle’ (‘The Red Mill’/’Moulin Rouge’), where a passionate love drama has deadly consequences.


WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW?
A brief and somewhat patronising note in Berlingske Tidende states that industry representatives turned up for the premiere to "look out for potential talents among the young troupe, who, whatever one might think about the relative merits of their performances, certainly set about their task with great zeal and respect".
