Synopsis
Russian director Vsevolod I. Pudovkin's "Mother" is the chronicle of an individual's transformation from political naivete to Marxist awareness set during the 1905 Russian Revolution. Pudovkin uses innovative montage techniques and camera angles to tell this bold story of national unrest through the eyes of a working class woman
Obviously there must have been other Russian silent film directors besides Sergei Eisenstein, but coming by copies of their work has not been easy. Now we have this silent 1926 classic from Vsevolod Pudovkin that tells the story of the abortive 1905 revolt through the eyes of one Russian "Mother," eloquently played by Vera Baranovskaya. Niovna-Vlasova is caught in the middle when her husband (Aleksandr Chistyakov) and son (Nikolai Batalov) are on opposite sides during a worker's strike, although the father has been coerced into opposing the strike. "Mother" features Ivan Koval-Samborsky as the Young Strike Organizer and Anna Zemtsova as the Girl Revolutionary.
Pudovkin dramatizes the injustices of Czarist life, focusing on the problems of this single family. As Niovna sees what is happening around her she comes to take a dramatic stand against the police and the Cossak troops during a fatal demonstration. Pudovkin is certainly as creative in his use of montage as Eisenstein and "Mother" would be an excellent film to screen before the classic "Battleship Potemkin." Certainly Pudovkin details the brutal conditions that set up the Russian Revolution. This might be propaganda, but it has the ring of truth to it, something Eisenstein's cinematic masterpiece cannot claim as well. There are no extras on this DVD, but this is an important piece of cinema history that can stand by itself
