A textbook cinema classic, and masterpiece of creative editing, especially in the famous Odessa Steps sequence in which innocent civilians are mown down in the bloodshed; the happenings of a minute are drawn into five by frenzied cross-cutting.áThe film contains 1,300 separate shots, and was judged the best film ever made in 1948 and 1958 by a panel of international judges.
