liked it

It was funny, it was sad, it's a little scary in the abortion clinic scene but as a whole I liked it. I've read that the couple were 'living in poverty' but that wasn't apparent as they had a small but private one room apartment and the husband had a job as a construction foreman. From what I've read of that time equality meant that everyone was equally poor, but they seemed capable of being happy there until the husband starts to take her for granted. I think movies were still a novelty for many people at the time and the picture is full of arty shots of trains, moving machinery, busy public square and all sorts of visual treats about life in the city. It is surprisingly frank about their love triangle and again, the scene at the abortion clinic was pretty raw. I'm glad I saw this along with 'Chess Fever' which was made just a few years before and was hilarious.
