  1. José Neves's rating of the film Chapayev

    35mm. It is supposed to be one of the Soviet socialist realism marks, and if there is no doubt about its ideological property, the formal features may be called anything but realistic. Following a direct narrative, without the constructivist formalism, however, adapts the speed and dexterity of its editing to a superior and apured form of framing and narration. The battle scenes, for instance, are indispensable.
