Tora Teje

Three cheers for the Swedish actress whose sophistication and wit carry the day in the chaste 1920 romantic comedy Erotikon. Part of the challenge for movie directors working with great stage actors in the silent era was to scale down the broadness of their acting style to fit the cooler medium of cinema. Tora Teje gracefully brings her stage powers down to a naturalized level that allows her to be an electric and thoroughly modern character.
