Betrayal !
7 January 2004 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

'Time in the Sun' cannot be considered as an Eisenstein's movie : it's a montage, made by Mary Seaton, of what was filmed by Eisenstein for 'Que Viva Mexico !' The result is very useless, meaningless, and has a stupid narrator voice, which transforms those superb pictures in an uninteresting ethnographic documentary.
