  BEZHIN MEADOW FILM REVIEW



Eisenstein was possibly the greatest of the Soviet film-makers, although here you'll only get a taster of what he could do. The basic storyline seems to be that a man decides to sabotage the local economy by burning down a meadow, but is opposed by his good Soviet son. However, the film was burnt by the Soviet authorities in 1937 and what we have here is a series of stills taken from out-takes discovered in the 60s and restored by archivists. It's interesting enough to watch - if only for the might-have-been quotient - but, unless you're a total film buff, there's probably more to life than that.
