(aka "Chelovek s kino-apparatom" or "Living Russia, or The Man with a Camera" or "The Man with the Movie Camera")

 

directed by Dziga Vertov
Soviet Union 1929

 

"I am an eye. A mechanical eye. I am the machine that reveals the world to you as only the machine can see it.”   - Dziga Vertov ("Kino-Eye")

These words, written in 1923 (only a year after Robert Flaherty’s Nanook of the North was released) reflect the Soviet pioneer’s developing approach to cinema as an art form that shuns traditional or Western narrative in favor of images from real life. They lay the foundation for what would become the crux of Vertov’s revolutionary, anti-bourgeois aesthetic wherein the camera is an extension of the human eye, capturing “the chaos of visual phenomena filling the universe.” Over the next decade-and-a-half, Vertov would devote his life to the construction and organization of these raw images, his apotheosis being the landmark 1929 film The Man with the Movie Camera. In it, he comes closest to realizing his theory of ‘Kino-Eye,’ creating a new, more ambitious and more significant picture than what the eye initially perceives.

Now – thanks to the extraordinary restoration efforts of Lobster Films, Blackhawk Films® Collection, EYE Film Institute, Cinémathèque de Toulouse, and the Centre National de la Cinématographie – Flicker Alley is able to present the four films featured on Dziga Vertov: The Man with the Movie Camera and Other Newly-Restored Works in a brand-new, Blu-ray edition.

The Man with the Movie Camera (1929) - Named the best documentary film of all time by Sight and Sound, it is presented here in its entirety for the first time since its original premiere. Discovered and restored at EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam—with extensive digital treatment by Lobster Films—the 35mm print from which this edition is, in part, sourced is the only known complete version of the film.
 

Kino-Eye (1924) – A cinematographic poem in which Vertov lays the foundation of his Kino-Eye principles, the film shows the incredible force of his theories, but also the beauty and energy of a society fresh from revolution, ready to face the challenges of a difficult future.


Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass (1931) – One of the first Soviet sound films, it deals with the Five Year Plan of the late 1920s, and represents Vertov’s radical attempt to link economic progress with the introduction of sound in cinema.


Three Songs About Lenin (1934) – Arguably Vertov’s most personal work, the triptych celebrates the Soviet leader 10 years after his death as seen through the eyes of the people.

The Man with the Movie Camera and Kino-Eye feature musical accompaniments by Alloy Orchestra and Robert Israel respectively, while original soundtracks have been restored for Enthusiasm and Three Songs About Lenin.

Bonus features include Kino-Pravda #21, a newsreel made in 1925 to mark the first anniversary of Lenin’s death, as well as a booklet featuring information about Vertov’s life and works.

***

This kaleidoscopic city symphony-- conjoining Moscow, Kiev, Odessa into one metametropolis-- may be the most densely edited movie ever made. Vertov matches the rhythms of a single day to the cycle of life, and the mechanisms of moviemaking to the logic of industrial production.... The Man With the Movie Camera is at once a Whitmanesque documentary-portrait of the Soviet people, a reflexive essay on cinematic representation, and an ecstatic ode to human labor as a process of transformation.

Comments:

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were obtained directly from the Blu-ray disc.

ADDITION: Masters of Cinema - Region 'B' - Blu-ray (April 2016): Firstly, I only seem to have the first Blu-ray of this set described as a "Four disc Limited Edition set, with all content on Blu-ray and DVD" - The first BD houses "Man with a Movie Camera", the Ian Christie and David Cairns extras. We presume the second Blu-ray to have the shorts. In fact, it is described as "Presented in a definitive new restoration from EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam and Lobster Films, the film is also presented with other works by Vertov both before and after his masterpiece - Kino-Eye (1924), Kino-Pravda #21 (1925), Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass (1931) and Three Songs About Lenin (1934) - in this limited-edition Dual-Format edition."

The MoC transfer is the superior one - more robust than the Flicker Alley (10 Gig more for the feature and almost double the bitrate) with a max'ed out bitrate and via the source restored during the spring of 2014 by Lobster Films with the participation of the Eye Film Institute. It looks very similar to the Flicker Alley but I believe the black levels may be marginally inkier.  This page was becoming unstable so I've compared only 8 of the images below.

Audio is linear PCM for all the films and The Man with the Movie Camera is presented with music by The Alloy Orchestra following the musical instruction written by Dziga Vertov and as it was produced for the Pordenone Silent Film Festival. It's notable that the Kino-Eye Score is by Robert Israel. Masters of Cinema include optional English subtitles on the original Russian inter-titles.

Moc also include a new audio commentary on Man with a Movie Camera by film scholar Adrian Martin revealing plenty of interesting factoids, an exclusive, 46-minute video interview with film scholar Ian Christie on Vertov's career and the films in this set entitled The Life and Times of Dziga Vertov and a new 20-minute video essay by David Cairns - it's called Dziga Vertov: Non-Fiction Film Thing and is wonderful. The package contains a real gem - a 100-page limited edition book featuring new notes on all five films, a selection of writings by Vertov, two contemporary articles, an essay on the restoration, and archival imagery.

Trust Masters of Cinema do do this to the max. This 4-disc set is the best, IMO and a must own. Our absolute highest recommendation!

ADDITION: BFI - Region 'B' Blu-ray - July 2015 - As you can see for yourself - the BFI has not had the extensive cleaning that the Flicker Alley has (or is not from the same restoration). The UK disc has plenty of marks and scratches. It does not show the rounded-corners that the US Blu-ray does (many feel they should not be seen) is substantially cropped, and the BFI starts with the Russian title card while the Flicker Alley had the French one. Personally, I am not so 'against' the BFI appearance - I appreciate the increased texture and the quality matches the film's age. It has almost 50% higher the bitrate and the integrity of the film benefits. Admittedly, it is darker and we lose some detail. It doesn't have the 'Wow' factor that watching the Flicker Alley's smoothness does, but it offered other things like the, previously used, wonderful Michael Nyman score uncompressed (in linear PCM) and an optional audio commentary by Russian film scholar Yuri Tsivian. Plus the supplements include the Kino-Pravda No. 21 (Dziga Vertov, 1925, 35:16): newsreel devoted on Lenin on the anniversary of his death, with a new Mordant Music, electronic, score, who also do a new score for Dziga Vertov's 1926 One-Sixth of the Globe - ETV version (1:24:08): ideologically charged documentary, presented in its specially prepared UK distribution version. Also included are the hour long Three Songs of Lenin - Vertov's film from 1935 - a poetic propaganda film based on three songs of the Soviet East dedicated to the revolutionary leader and David Collard, from 2009, discussing Three Songs of Lenin and W H Auden for about 6-minutes. Simon Callow, also from 2009, Reads W H Auden's Versus from Three Songs of Lenin for a brief 3-minutes. The package contains a fully illustrated booklet with essays and full credits and is region 'B'-locked. Bottom line - the image discrepancy is not a deal-breaker for me although I would say it is inferior, I like the alternate, and lossless, scores (Nyman's on "Man with a Movie Camera" reminding e of the older BFI DVD, and the electronic experimentalists 'Mordant Music' on other features), plus the extras that aren't on the Flicker Alley - i.e. commentary, readings, booklet. I will watch this again even though I own the Flicker Alley!

ADDITION: Flicker Alley - Region FREE Blu-ray - May 2015 - Presented without comment, except.... 'wow'.

***

ADDITION: BFI Nyman Edition - Nov 07': The BFI DVD with Michael Nyman's score uses the same source that the German Absolut Medien, although the BFI image looks as if it may be a shade sharper. The BFI disc is picture boxed (black borders on every corner) and the actual screen ratio on the DVD is 1:1.24. I believe that the OAR should be in 1:1.19 for these silent film. There's no subtitles during the film, only a brief introduction with Russian title card translations to English. It doesn't appear to exhibit the chroma found in the Arte and older BFI edition. For some it may be the one to get.

On the First three posted: With these three releases of Dziga Vertov's essential "Man with a Movie Camera" we get quite a wide range of diverging quality. Let's start with the worst.

The already 7 year old BFI disc is the obvious loser. It lacks sharpness, detail and is full of artefacts (many of them are in color, which damages the black and white image severely). The screenshots should already give you an impression of this very poor transfer, yet it looks even worse in motion, particularly if you use a projector.

The choices of score here are the Alloy Orchestra and In the Nursery Scores. I know a lot of people who love the In the Nursery track, yet I've always been enamored with the Alloy Orchestra score, because it provides the perfect dynamic rhythm that the images demand.
 

The only extra on the BFI release is an audio commentary by film historian Yuri Tsivian. Tsivian explains Vertov's revolutionary techniques and intentions, such as the concept of catching "life unawares" and ignoring the conventions of narrative cinema. It's a very informative and insightful track, certainly worth more than one listen.

In motion, the French arte and German absolut Medien releases look quite similar. Yet upon closer inspection I've found the German release to be the clear winner. No disc of "Man with a Movie Camera" that I have seen so far has displayed this sharpness, crispness and detail. The black and white imagery is beautifully preserved and the contrast is excellent throughout.

Just look at the very first screencap and you'll see the ranking immediately. While the French arte disc isn't quite as sharp and detailed as the German release, it is still far superior in quality to the disastrous BFI job.

Score-wise the German release disappointed me, due to the lack of the fantastic Alloy Orchestra score. This score isn't just my own personal preference, but is absolutely indispensable due to being faithfully based on Vertov's notes and musical instructions. Any DVD release of "Man with a Movie Camera" that wants to call itself "ultimate" must include this soundtrack. Just to further proof my point regarding this score, here's J. Hoberman's comment from the Village Voice:

"The three-man ensemble's original score (for Man with a Movie Camera) - a syncopated noise symphony that, at once homemade and high-tech, mixes radio transmissions, birdcalls, and police sirens- surpasses all expectations in its sensitivity to Vertov's wit, eccentricity, and sense of rhythm. ...A once-in-a-life-time experience."

J. Hoberman, Village Voice
 

The German disc's scores are all thoroughly disappointing. All of them are experimental tracks, surely with good intentions, yet I can only tell you that once you hear the Alloy Orchestra score you will never want to listen to any another musical accompaniment for this film again.

As for bonus material, on the German release one can find the 80-minute plus documentary "In the Land of the Film Veterans: Filmexpedition to Dziga Vertov" in which Thomas Tode goes on a pilgrimage to pay tribute to the great Soviet director. Alas, the only subtitles are German ones which pop up during conversations in Russian.

The French arte disc on the other hand does have the Alloy score and presents it in wonderful quality. In addition to that they offer a so-called Volga Select score.

The major extra on the arte disc is the documentary "Un si joli mot: le montage" by Bernard Eisenschitz, in which we get a history of the Soviet cinema of the 1920s. There's also a brief but insightful analysis of certain aspects of "Man with a Movie Camera" by Luc Lagier. Alas, those extras are unsubtitled as well.

My overall verdict is that the German disc by absolut Medien (co-produced by arte) is the unquestionable winner. It can be ordered inexpensively from amazon.de and features a simply beautiful looking transfer, which is all the more astounding regarding the film's age. The arte disc from France runs a close second. It isn't quite as sharp as detailed as the German release, but still presents a very good looking image. The major plus here is the essential Alloy Orchestra score. The lack of it on the German release is the only reason why it cannot be considered complete.
The BFI disc from England is very bad and should be avoided at all costs. I assume that we can expect an updated BFI release of the film in the near future, but until then I urge you to stay away from their current release, which (even though it features Yuri Tsivian's wonderful commentary) presents a muddy, blurry and artefact-ridden image.
