    • Synopsis
    • It is the film debut of Lev Kuleshov (1899 – 1970). This work was tremendously important not only for the Russian cinema; it also became a milestone of the art of cinematography worldwide. This film introduced a specific method of film montage, which later became universally known as “Soviet montage”. In spite of the fact that Kuleshov’s classical work had preceded many discoveries and inventions of Eisenstein and Vertov, his films are less known outside Russia. The film contains a lot of puzzles which had to be solved during the course of reconstruction carried out by N. Izvolov in 2001. The film has been a subject of numerous interpretations, commentaries and scholarly analyses.
