Storyline

A 1935 USA trade-paper reviewer called it... "an impressive and technically outstanding historical drama dealing with czarist terrorism and revolutionary boiling in the days of 1907. Picture is one of the Soviet prize winners and has particular merits in realistic performance, photography and movement, plus some musical touches in way of folk songs."

Interesting look at an early film by Kozintsev (and Trauberg)
22 May 2003 | by kerpanSee all my reviews

A little like "Battleship Potemkin", but almost a musical, with touches of romance. A relatively early soviet sound film (it still shows traces of techniques reminiscent of silent films, but also revels in the ability to use sound) -- it tells the story of Maxim, a young factory worker who gets involved in "labor problems" and then is branded a revolutionary trouble-maker. Too bad a sub-titled version isn't readily available.
