Cineconcert: Battleship Potemkin
Orchestre National du Capitol de Toulouse conducted by Dimitris Botinis - Halle aux Grains
Program Info: Edmund Meisel - Battleship Potemkin
He had to close the Franco-Russian Musics last year: The Battleship Potemkin is finally given in Toulouse. An absolute masterpiece of the Seventh Art, having become an icon for all moviegoers, Eisenstein's film gave birth to a symphonic work composed by the German Edmund Meisel. Unavoidable.
In line, bayonets drawn, the soldiers descend the steps. They shoot in the crowd. The baby cries. The mother is dying. The pram rushes down the stairs ... This is one of the most famous scenes in the history of cinema. The mutiny of the Potemkin's sailors who revolt by dint of bullying from their officers. The union of these sailors and the inhabitants of Odessa against Tsarist oppression. The celebration of the Russian Revolution of 1905. The flagship, indestructible film of Soviet cinema. An unsinkable vessel piloted by Sergei M. Eisenstein, a young director barely 26 years old. And the revolutionary and rebellious ship sails forever, her bow breaking the pitfalls of time. A masterpiece.
