(Dimitri Kirsanoff, 1934).
One of the most poetic European films of the 1930s, Rapt is based on a novel by the noted Swiss writer Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz about the ethnic and religious tensions that divide the peasant inhabitants of two neighboring mountain villages. The moody musical score by Arthur Honegger is first-rate.
