    a rare case of a highly voted movie, and an oldie too, with no "1"s on IMDb 6 years 1 month ago

    I'm glad it wasn't a propaganda film with uprising masses (which is why I don't like Russian silents that much) but a film essentially focussing on 3 people first fighting each other, nature and their conscience (whether they can force the law or not).
