Audience Reviews for Menilmontant

½

This 38-minute short isn't much as a story -- just a sketchy melodrama about two pretty sisters whose lives go astray after a pale, thin creep seduces them both. But never mind the plot -- this is another of those innovative Russian silents where the virtuoso, rapid-fire editing is enough of a lure on its own. There are no title cards, but you won't miss them. What I did miss was an effective score -- the version I saw had a contemporary, avant-jazz soundtrack that clashed with the images more than complementing them.
