his 7th floor attic-apartment&nbsp;where, away from the world, love grows and empowers them, until World War I separates them, in a&nbsp;romantic-drama about love as a spiritual and transformative force.&nbsp; Directed by Frank Borzage.<br /> <strong>(1927)&nbsp; 118 Minutes&nbsp; USA&nbsp; </strong></p> <p><a
