Intoxication (German: Rausch) is a 1919 German silent drama film directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Asta Nielsen, Alfred Abel and Karl Meinhardt. It was based on the play Brott och brott by August Strindberg, which was later remade as the 1928 film Sin. Lubitsch was loaned out from UFA to the smaller Argus-Film for the production.
Gaston finally succeeds as a dramatist and decides to leave his wife and child for another woman. When the child dies, the finger is pointed at him, and he winds up as a destitute before all is revealed.
