The Abyss (Urban Gad, Afgrunden, Denmark 1910)





Janet Bergstrom, in her papaer Asta Nielsen's Early German Films, chronicles Asta Nielsen asking Urban Gad if he would write a film for her. "Afgrunden" not only secured an international audience for her but it heralded the film itself becoming an art form. Bergstrom notes Nielsen having written that she aspired to imrpove her acting ability by watching herself on the screen.
