AFI Top 100 Film: Sunrise

Sunrise: A song of Two Humans

So this was an allegorical film with intentionally vague setting and unnamed characters. In summary, it was the story of a man who was tempted to infidelity by a woman visiting from a nearby city, but who ultimately rediscovers his better nature and rekindles his relationship with his wife. In many ways, the movie feels ahead of its time, probably as a result of its vague nature. The soundtrack was less corny than comedies of the era, which helped with my enjoyment. All in all, I suppose this was a worthwhile viewing experience despite the relatively uncomplicated plot and somewhat cheesy melodrama.
