Tih Minh 2: Deux drames dans la nuit, Tih Minh 3: Les Mystères de la Villa Circé

FR 1918. PC: Gaumont. D: Louis Feuillade. /18 fps/ 30' + 37'. Archives Gaumont-Pathé. ♪ Gabriel Thibaudeau. Monday 4 July 2005, Cinema Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. An amulet with a paralyzing impact, letters with vanishing ink, Tih Minh having lost her memory collecting flowers from the field. The cellar of the Villa Circé full with daughters of the upper circles in their underwear, having lost their identity. Placide the servant infiltrates to Villa Circé, switches water with the consciousness-deleting drug and hides in a trunk as the villains move. Memorable images: the wandering daughters who have lost their souls; the trunk where Placide is hidden shown as a see-through image.
