Capellani was now the principal filmmaker at SCAGL. In 1913, he made a powerful adaptation of Zola’s Germinal, shot partially on locations. This film was particularly striking for the underplaying of its actors and its documentary style. He also adapted contemporary novels, such as La Glu (1913) with Mistinguett and his brother Paul Capellani, mixing tragedy and humor.
