Storyline

Filmic insert to Eisenstein's modernized, free adaptation of Ostrovskiy's 19th-century Russian stage play, "The Wise Man" ("Na vsyakogo mudretsa dovolno prostoty"). The anti-hero Glumov tries to escape exposure in the midst of acrobatics, derring-do, and farcical clowning. Several members of Eisenstein's troupe at the legendary "Proletkult" stage theatre in Moscow briefly appear in this little film. Written by Steven P Hill, University of Illinois.

Eisenstein's first?
30 April 2007 | by (Xanadu) – See all my reviews

This is presented as Eisensteins' first movie. It was probably directed by him, but considering it's a short movie and the emphasis is placed more on the editing than on anything else it's hard to acknowledge it as one of the masters'. However the movie is very impressive, and not only for its historical value. No matter what it shows you, it's the way it does it that's captivating: in a playful manner stimulating your fantasy. The editing, though not so philosophically relevant as in Stachka, Potemkin etc. is consciously ambiguous, you can place a meaning on the correlations between the shots but can never be sure what's real and what's not. Of course, since it's a movie about magic... Highly recommended if you come across it...
