The Storm (1910) Online

This picture is in reality a series of magnificent scenes of the sea lashed into fury by a storm on the rock-bound coast of Normandy. The departure of the fishing smacks, the lonely wives left on the shore, the anxious watchers during the storm, and the finding of a body washed up by the cruel waves, add interest to the film. The scenes showing the water dashing over the rocks, sending its spray many feet into the air in showy clouds, are of marvelous beauty and make the film one of the most attractive ever put out. {locallinks-homepage}

Really a series of views of the ocean lashed into fury on the rockbound coasts of Normandy. The tragedy in it may, for some, add a certain degree of heart interest, but wouldn't it have been better to have caught the spirit of the storm, the grandeur of it, and its weird and overwhelming beauty, rather than to depict its destructiveness? In a tempest man is but an incident. Even though the winds and waves destroy life and property, if either comes in their way. the grandeur and the majesty of it are not diminished. Interpret the storm in all its majesty and strength, but do not detract from the impression it would make by introducing the element of human anguish. It spoils the beauty of the storm without offering anything adequate in return. The photography in this film, representing the breakers, white as wool, and the spray, dashed in clouds above the rocks, is marvelous and may well be looked upon as an unusual achievement. - The Moving Picture World, May 7, 1910
