Breve Storia del Cinema - L'impressionismo http://www.brevestoriadelcinema.org/s... Ménilmontant (pronounced: [menilmɔ̃tɑ̃]) is a 1925 film written and directed by Dimitri Kirsanoff which takes its name from the Paris neighborhood of the same name. The film is a silent, but does not contain any intertitles. It begins with a flurry of quick close-up shots depicting the axe murder of the parents of the protagonists, two girls. As young women, they are portrayed by Nadia Sibirskaïa, Kirsanoff's first wife, and Yolande Beaulieu; their mutual love interest is played by Guy Belmont. The film uses many other techniques that were relatively new at the time, including double exposure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A9n...
