3 things about Jacques Feyder’s FACES OF CHILDREN

Faces of Children [1925]

1. The child watches the gravedigger refill his mother’s grave, then passes out. His father carries him home. The gravedigger continues in his work without a pause.
2. Pierrette is like a paleo-Tootie, like Margaret O’Brien in Meet Me in St. Louis. Witness the scene where she gleefully smears wild berries all over her face.
3. He stares into the water, frightened. As the river churns and churns he pictures his dead mother pouring milk into bucket.
