"The Monastery of Sendomir" ("Secret of the Monastery" in IMDB) is a poignant drama, featuring director Victor Sjöström (Seastrom), a star of Silent Hall of Fame.

Victor Seastrom was successful in his native Sweden before making a career in the USA in 1924-1930.  His Hollywood films are still copyrighted, this is why we show you a film from his previous years.

A powerful count suspects his young wife of infidelity.  Will his quest for vengeance destroy everything he has and doom him to misery for the rest of his life? 

The film enjoys a nice rating in IMDB.
