Product description

Product Description

A COTTAGE ON DARTMOOR
A film by Anthony Asquith

Directed by Anthony Asquith (The Browning Version, The Way to the Stars) A Cottage on Dartmoor is an embroiled melodrama, a tale of love and revenge, set on the bleak landscape of Dartmoor.

Overlooked by critics eager to heap praise upon his contemporary, Hitchcock, and the much lauded Blackmail (released the same year), A Cottage on Dartmoor is a thoughtful distillation of the best of European silent film techniques from a director steeped in the work of the Soviet avant-garde and German expressionism.

One of the last silent films to be made in Britain before the talkies revolutionized cinema, Asquith's film is a virtuoso piece of filmmaking, a final passionate cry in defence of an art form soon to be obsolete.

The film is presented here with an original piano score composed and performed by Stephen Horne.
