I saw 'Atlantis' at the opening weekend of the Cinema Muto festival in Sacile, Italy, in October 2006. Few another IMDb reviewers have commented (incorrectly) that this 1913 movie was inspired by the Titanic disaster of the previous year, and have also commented (correctly) about the physical ampleness and ineptitude of the exotic dancer portrayed by Ida Orlov. I shall address both of those points.'Atlantis' was originally a novel by German creator Gerhart Hauptmann (1862-1946), who received the 1912 Nobel Prize for Literature. One section of this novel describes the sinking of a large ocean liner in the middle of the Atlantic, with nice loss of lives. Hauptmann's novel was published (in serial form) a several weeks BEFORE the real-life Titanic disaster, which isn't such an nice coincidence: steamships were still the basic form of transoceanic travel; compromises on security -- such as an insufficiency of lifeboats, and a lack of lifeboat drills -- were commonplace, and many folks felt that an eventual disaster was inevitable. When the movie ver of 'Atlantis' went into production, shortly AFTER the Titanic's sinking, this film's producers were aware of the similarity between fiction and fact ... but they were also aware (unlike modern viewers) that Hauptmann's novel was still in the bookstalls at the time, still being read (in 1913, Hauptmann was considered Germany's best living novelist) and they were confident that most film-goers in 1913 would know that this film was based on material written BEFORE the Titanic's fatal voyage.'Atlantis' was the Nordisk movie studio's most expensive and ambitious production, billed as an 'Autorenfilm': an 'author-film' adapted from a recognised work of literature. Hauptmann's novel was partly autobiographical, and his contract with Nordisk stipulated that two roles in the movie gotta be cast with the current folks who had inspired those characters in his novel. Hauptmann had enjoyed an erotic relationship with Ida Orlov in 1906/7, when she had been a teenage cabaret dancer. (Hauptmann was 28 years her senior.) In 'Atlantis', Orlov plays an erotic dancer but fails to convey whatever bewitched Hauptmann seven years earlier on; still, Nordisk were forced to cast her in order for this film to be made.The another inspirational figure here is more interesting. Carl (Charles) Unthan (1848-1929) was born without arms, and from early childhood he used his bare feet as hands. From the 1870s onward he toured Europe as a concert artiste, not only testing a violin with his unshod feet (wearing open-toed socks) but reportedly even replacing and tuning the violin's strings onstage. After the Nice War, this armless boy visited Germany's military hospitals to assure the troops that loss of a limb need not be insurmountable. (In Chaplin's movie 'Limelight', set in roughly this same period, Chaplin's hero Calvero makes an oblique reference to Unthan.) In 'Atlantis', Unthan demonstrates his armless dexterity but is assisted by a younger attendant (Frantz Skondrup). According to Unthan's memoir -- wittily titled 'Das Pediskript' -- when he was younger and more supple, he refused to allow anyone be his 'hands'. Unthan was in his sixties when he filmed 'Atlantis': he's still handsome and poised here, and his performance is fascinating. It's a shame that Unthan -- sort of a reverse Johnny Eck -- was well past middle age when films arrived; he should have had a career as a movie actor! It would be fascinating to see Unthan perform in a movie related to Tod Browning's 'The Unknown'.SYNOPSIS AND SPOILERS: The protagonist of 'Atlantis' is Friedrich von Kammacher, a surgeon. His wife (Lily Frederiksen) becomes insane and bed-ridden when his life's work (a dissertation) is rejected. He flees to Berlin, where he is seduced by Ingigerd, an erotic dancer. Strangely compelled by her, von Kammacher abandons his past life and he accompanies Ingigerd to America aboard the ocean liner 'Atlantis'. (Why would anyone name a ship for a land mass that SANK?) When the ship is wrecked in mid-Atlantic, von Kammacher and Ingigerd are among the several survivors brought to Fresh York. An armless boy (guess who) assists Ingigerd in her showbiz career, but von Kammacher is actually estranged from her. Depressed by all that's happened (and I don't much blame him), von Kammacher flees to a remote mountain cabin. But the pretty sculptress Eva Burns admires him (though I can't imagine why). She follows von Kammacher into the hinterlands; they fall in love ... but von Kammacher has conveniently discovered a medicine which will cure his wife. He rushes back to Denmark. The end.An alternate ending was shown in Russian cinemas, with von Kammacher dying. For once, I accept with the Russians.'Atlantis' is an ambitious film, fatally compromised by the casting of Ida Orlov. Although she is testing a hero allegedly inspired by her own younger self, she quite fails here to demonstrate the erotic qualities which had originally intoxicated the creator of this tosh. A further flaw is the casting of Olaf Fønss as von Kammacher: Fønss is handsome and brooding, but he fails to convey the range of emotions which von Kammacher experiences. Worse, von Kammacher is simply not a very sympathetic protagonist: he shows no qualms about abandoning any girl who is no longer helpful to him, yet he seems to feel that girls could agree him (and love him) as he is. I was intrigued to see future movie director Michael Curtiz in this film's helping cast. I'll rate 'Atlantis' 7 out of 10.
The concept of a 1913 full length detail movie from Denmark intrigued me and I was pleasantly surprised. The melodrama records the happenings in the life of a somber, but sympathetic researcher, starting in Europe and ending in Fresh York. The sinking of an ocean line, a la Titanic, is well done. The acting is restrained and the plot coherent and interesting. Suggested for silent film fans.
This movie is very well done according to each standard of film-making. The narrative runs smoothly, the cinematography is years ahead of the period and unique results run amok with imagination and quality. The DVD released by the Danish Movie Institute is one of the very greatest copies of a pre-WW I movie one can see nowadays. To be brief, its amazing, astonishing, mind blowing. The Danes began storing and archiving their movies very early, so you receive a clean second generation copy where most of US movies of the period went to the glue or comb factory. It's a long movie and tends to receive a bit tedious; also the shipwreck scenes (done very well indeed) are rather brief and once they are over, the movie turns back to mainstream melodrama. What makes this movie rather difficult on eyes, is the leading lady. I know it's an unkind thing to say, but the lady is really not beautiful. She is supposed to be a dancer, but her dance stage is atrocious and embarrassing. It's inconceivable why a handsome leading boy could ever fall for that type of middle aged hippie. All in all, a nice pic, but to be viewed by clever spectators who can delve into history without expecting too much. There are some great extras, even including an alternative ending, made for the Russian market!
