Anja Kreysing sets the foundation for the film score with a beautiful and classic accordeon line: the theme for the film's young couple Nina and Jonathon.
During the course of the film, the accordeon is supported, later replaced by synthesized soundscapes, sampled fragments of voices, electronic instruments and other sources of sound to give the film an additional layer of modern sound and feel.
Various versions of the original film exist, some feature different titles than others and even a colorized version (where different scenes are tinted in different colored duplex tones that seem fairly random at times) has been made, alledgedly approved by the director.

 Silent Era : DVD : The Love Light (1921) Review
The film was a creative risk because it was a turgid and tragic love story that departed somewhat from the sweet Mary character audiences loved, and it was a WWI era drama made at a time when audiences had had their fill of war stories.
This complicated film requires a complicated synopsis: Angela lives with her two brothers in a small coastal town in Italy.
Our opinion has been that this was one of Mary Pickford’s lesser films, but it also represents one of her many attempts to stretch as an artist and carry her audience with her.

The film, along with The Mark of Zorro was a prototype for Fairbanks' later films and its crowning glory is Fairbanks' performance.

 Silent Era : DVD : The Sheik (1921) Review
The film, based on a ‘scandalous’ British novel, seems more than a bit melodramatic today, with its ‘forbidden’ interracial love elements and its sappy story of a privileged and self-determined society woman who is knocked-down a peg or two by the desert and its inhabitants.
The film is padded with a hodge podge of footage taken during the event and of the contestants afterwards, but the film served its purpose for Valentino and made Selznick a goodly sum of money at the beginning of his career as a film producer.
The film, which is likely exerpted from a longer compilation reel, has little purpose other than to keep new Valentino footage on the world's cinema screens until he formally returned to film acting.

 Purab aur Pachhim film
Through its temporal and spatial scope, the film sagely suggests that the struggle for Indian "independence" did not end in 1947, but must be waged continuously in the market-driven world of postcolonial "brain drains," diasporas, and transnational (but West-centered) capital.
The film epitomizes the burden that diasporic society places on women as bearers of tradition, and its intense nationalism allows no hint that the West might offer Indians anything besides money, sex, and science — it’s ultimate goal is to Bring the Boys Home.
Yet although predictably sexist and jingoist in its surface message, the film is more complex on the level of characterization: there are bad Indians like Harnam and Omkar, and good Westerners like Christina, who renounces her Indian fiancé when she learns from Bharat that he has an abandoned desi wife and child.

Charlie breaks loose and chases after the truck as he is being chased by a policeman from the slanted roof-tops in order to catch up to the truck and regain his "son." The close-up scene where father and son tearfully reunite is as touching as anything ever enacted on film.
As old as this film is, it holds up extremely well, with comedy timing it's main factor, thanks to both Chaplin and Coogan.
This also set the pattern for his future film works which was to at least include one crying scene.

 CSCL 1921 INTRODUCTION TO FILM STUDY
We will look at a number of films that have shaped the field, their formal properties such as mise-en-scène, acting, and montage, various movements (the French New Wave), Hollywood genres (Westerns and Film Noir), the documentary and avant-garde traditions, current topics in film studies (gender, race, post-colonial studies), and the advent of digital cinema.
