The Amazing Mr Kirsanoff

Short #1. I didn’t upload these.

Short #2. But I’m going to upload more. This one dates from 1950 — can we take this as evidence that Kirsanoff’s decline is a myth? Maybe some of the features he was forced to make in these later years are inferior, but his talent and imagination were intact. Even though at first this feels almost like a remake of BRUMES D’AUTOMNE.

Short #3. If you enjoyed MENILMONTANT, you’ll dig these. Minimum plot, maximum zazoozazoozazoozay.

Short #4.TOO  MUCH beauty? Ration it! This one effectively IS a remake, since Jean Epstein also filmed LES BERCEAUX.

OK — you may compare and contrast —
