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.
