Reviews in German: "... zieht man im Allgemeinen dasFazit dieses Werkes, so kann man sagen, dass
es als Film an sich, wenn man die Gedanken an Zola ausschaltet, eine
ausgezeichnete Leistung ist. Dem Roman selbst kommt es an Wucht der
Schilderung und Seelenanalyse auch nicht im Entferntesten nahe. Neu und
interessant waren die Zeichnungen, die die sechs Akte einleiteten. Sie kamen
dem Geist des Zolaschen Werkes am nächsten." (Kinematograph Nr. 732)
