Synopsis

Before the Russian revolution of 1917, there was a failed attempt to overthrow the royal government in 1905. That rebellion is glorified in one of the greatest silent films made, which shows how much can be communicated by facial expressions alone. The sailors of the Potemkin rise up against their cruel officers, and inspire the people of Odessa to follow them. Director Sergei Eisenstein's film is pure, unashamed propaganda, but it's also a true landmark in the history of the movies, with an eye for the spectacular that's rarely if ever been matched since.

Silent, with English intertitles.
