In the cinema of 1910 class relations, the divided worlds of town and country, of rich and poor are shown raw and unvarnished. Tourists arrive from the city and find the women’s costumes and rural occupations picturesque. But they do not have to struggle up the mountains to earn their living and instead are led up on mules, for fun, and sit in sledges for the local men to drag them down over the scree.
