What Is This?
19 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film comes to us from director Sergei Eisenstein, best known for his film "Battleship Potemkin". I am a bit unclear about why this film was made in France when Eisenstein's previous work had been in Russia, but I am sure there is a simple answer if I just looked into it.

This film is not nearly as polished as "Potemkin", and is very experimental. In fact, it is so experimental that I am unclear what the goal was. The only thing I really recall about it (and I only watched it two days ago) is plenty of footage of a dog and some wind.

I have seen the film classified as a comedy, which further confuses me, because I did not see anything really funny about it. Maybe I missed the point? This could be, because I am still trying to figure out what "sentimental romance" means in the context of this film... and I just do not get it.
