Sergei Eisenstein

Battleship Potemkin (Bronenosets Potemkin)

Edition 1990
66' - 1925 - Drama, Thriller - Dialogue: Russian, English
Director: Sergei Eisenstein Composer: Alain Gibert, Jean Mereu, Francois Raulin With: Grigoriy Aleksandrov, Aleksandr Antonov, Vladimir Barskiy
This film received, in its 60 years of existence, 3 musical scores: by Edmund Meisel, by Nicolaj Krioukov and, more recently, Dmitri Shostakovich. All underline the revolutionary and pathetic quality of Eisenstein's language, and not without effect. We, however, tried to realize a contemporary soundtrack, performed directly during screening, which aims at confronting with the film, without submitting the music to the image. Thus, the orchestra, respecting the pre-estab­lished editing of the film and staying close to the image, keeps at a distance. (La Marmite Infernale}
