Een partij schaak
The film dispensed entirely with inter-titles and was described as a "mime drama".
While playing a game of chess with a young friend of the family, the husband falls asleep. The young man takes advantage of the situation to make a declaration of his love to his friend's wife, but she, loving her husband, rejects his advances. The gentleman wakes up suddenly, suspects his wife of having done something improper, becomes angry, maltreats her and then faints. When he regains consciousness he believes that he has had a bad dream. The wife and the friend pretend that nothing has happened. In any case, the husband is now - rightly - convinced of his wife's unswerving love.
