This interesting tribute to Francesca Bertini is comprised of an interview with the early Italian-silents star herself, clips from her films -- especially focusing on the 1915 Assunta Spina, and scenes of her watching and commenting on a screening of one of her movies. She played the mother in the 1916 Odette, and reprised the same role in the 1934 sound version of Odette -- with her interpretation in both cases presented side-by-side from each film for an interesting contrast in the long gap between performances.
