Menilmontant

Dmitri Kirsanov's 1924 masterpiece would have been a remarkable achievement in any era—in the very earliest days of the Russian silent cinema, it is nearly unbelievable. From its breathtaking opening segment—a 40-second montage of a brutal ax murder—to its detailed, lyrical examination of the effects upon a girl and her sister, Kirsanov's film is a classic example of experimental filmmaking that is both unique and totally absorbing. Recommended. 25 min.
