    Beautifully filmed and directed for its time. Eisenstein knew what he was doing. Propaganda at its best. You can only imagine the influence of such a wellmade piece at the time, in the post-revolution years. Good (silent era)acting, experimental and revolutionary in terms of camerawork, editing and scenery. A silent masterpiece. 6 years 10 months ago

    This film is considered as one of the best film according to authorities. It is ordered by Lenin to young(27) director Eisenstein.
    The most interesting thing i noticed about this film is that the acting is very natural, not like the other silent films with exaggerated acting.

    Many films pay homage to the Odessa Steps scene, including Terry Gilliam's Brazil, Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Brian De Palma's The Untouchables, Tibor Takacs' Deathline, Laurel and Hardy's The Music Box, George Lucas's Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Chandrashekhar Narvekar's Hindi film Tezaab, Shukō Murase's anime Ergo Proxy and Peter Sellers' The Magic Christian. Several films spoof it, including Woody Allen's Bananas and Love and Death, Australia, Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker's Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult 8 years ago
