„Asta Nielsen depicts all the stages of her spiritual condition in this play. From the cheerful, larksome young girl returning to her parental home (…) to the mature woman hurling defiance at her father with a decisive No! In the assembly she swears an oath, completes her baptism by fire as she demolishes windowpanes armed with a hammer, then finally lands in prison. (…) Asta Nielsen performs this pantomime with consummate skill.“ (Christian Arp, Erste Internationale Film-Zeitung, 1913). The protagonists are based on British suffragettes Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughter Christabel Pankhurst. Bavarian censors only approved a version that had been shortened by 136 metres, leading Urban Gad to pull the film from release in Bavaria.
