Presentation of Seventh Heaven (1927)

Fernando Rodríguez Lafuente

Fernando Rodríguez Lafuente, within the cycle "Melodrama and Star-System" presents the film The Seventh Heaven, directed by Frank Borzage, whhich showed the sublime love between two marginal beings, a sewer cleaner who lives in an attic, "near the stars", and an abandoned girl. André Breton made it into a fetish film for the surrealists. He created the "ideal couple" formed by Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell, who between 1927 and 1933 played a dozen films together.
