  • But, once the couple leave the city and go to his farm in the country, except for a few grace notes—Murnau's camera flows through the wheat fields like wind—we are in the land of obvious compromise. Murnau—or, more likely, the multitudes looking over his shoulder—spends too much time away from the lovers. In Sunrise, everything is seen through the eyes of George O'Brien and Janet Gaynor. Here, the viewpoint is more objective, the climax rushed, and the film lurches into patchy melodrama. What Lotte Eisner called "the soft modeling" of Murnau's luminous lighting is present, but the all-important rhythm and sense of environment is, especially in the second half, disrupted.
