Isn't Life Wonderful?

D.W. Griffith directed this hymn to human survival, about a Polish family that emigrates to Germany after World War I and fights to hold itself together in the ensuing social and economic chaos. Shot entirely on location, this 1924 drama has a raw, documentary-like quality that anticipates Italian neorealism, a movement that would emerge under depressingly similar circumstances more than 20 years later. With Carol Dempster and Neil Hamilton.
