Dziga Vertov's Man with a movie camera is considered one of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era. This dawn-to-dusk view of the Soviet Union offers a montage of urban Russian life, showing the people of the city at work and at play, and the machines that endlessly whirl to keep the metropolis alive.

dizzying array of camera tricks and locations. swept along in a day in the life of a Soviet city, which actually took 3 years to put together. made in 1929 but has a very fast paced modern feel.

Can a silent-era film containing no actors, no plotline, and no narration-cards actually hold the rapt attention of a jaded viewer, like myself, for more than just a few minutes?_____ As hard as it is to believe (after watching 1929's "Man With A Movie Camera"), I'm convinced that it can. This has got to be one of the most interesting films of the silent-era that I have ever seen._____ Filmed in Russia (mainly within the city of Moscow) and directed by Dziga Vertov (also a Russian), I found it quite surprising how startlingly modern this film appeared to be._____ Utilizing a groundbreaking style of rapid-fire editing and incorporating other cinematic techniques such as split-screen, slow motion, and freeze-frame, the final effect of this experimental film was, at times, nothing short of mesmerizing._____ In this dusk-till-dawn view if urban, Russian life (as the wheels of progress relentlessly turn round and round), the viewer gets a rare, front-row seat to take a glimpse at the city and its people at work, rest, and play.
