Film Notes

Asta Nielsen and Psilander starred together in two films in 1911 at the very beginning of their careers: Den sorte Drøm at Fotorama and Balletdanserinden (The Ballet Dancer) at Nordisk Films – both romantic “eternal triangle” melodramas. The director Urban Gad – who was to become Asta’s husband the following year – wrote the script for Den sorte Drøm, and the story of the young artist who suffers so much pain to save her lover is heartbreaking. Asta Nielsen’s acting is brilliant and gripping and almost makes up for the poor technical quality of the film.
