The Hourglass

Fritz Magnussen, 1922, 101 min
The lawyer Magnus Brygge has everything – a good job, two beautiful children and a young, beautiful student who has set her eyes on him. But soon his luck will begin to turn. A sleazy painter with nefarious ulterior motives first turns the head of the professor’s daughter and then of his young bride-to-be, with fatal outcomes and broken relationships as a result. Like sand through an hourglass, everything is about to go down in this bleak but breathtakingly beautiful winter drama with Olaf Fønss in the lead role.

The film has Dutch intertitles and Danish subtitles.
