Made for the 20th anniversary of the 1905 revolution, Eisenstein's all-time classic follows the mutiny by the crew of the Prince Potemkin and the support given by the local civilian population, who are mown down by the Czar's troops in the famous Odessa Steps sequence. Expressive camera technique and a grasp of editing that wrote the textbooks are just some of the innovations that first put Eisenstein and Soviet cinema firmly on the map.
