Four Sons
This silent film tells the story of the Bernle family of Bavaria. Mother Bernle dotes upon her four sons, but is powerless in guiding their destinies. When WWI breaks out, her sons march to the front: two of the boys fight for the AEF, the other two for the Kaiser.

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
