In Crucified Girl, Louise Kolm-Fleck and Jakob Fleck staged the personal tragedy of a young woman in a sensitive and completely subjective way, so that they could empathise with what was being portrayed, but also maintain the right detachment and rationality in portraying such a dramatic situation that only a few people at the time could really understand.

Few people know that one of the most important periods in Austrian cinema was the 1920s. During this period, in fact, films with a biblical or epic character were mainly produced in Italy and Austria. This is the case (if we want to remain in Austria) with Samson and Delilah – directed in 1922 by the Hungarian Alexander Korda – as well as with the famous Sodom and Gomorrah, by Michael Curtiz.
