Sentimental RomanceDownloadable Video - 1930
A short, experimental, slightly poetic montage of city and abstract images. The soundtrack demonstrates Eisenstein's theory of "contrapuntal use of sounds" or the attempt to find a common denominator between sound and image. The sound for Romance Sentimentale is drawn directly on the film's optical track and is the first instance of the use of this technique. This was not intended as a materialist film statement; it was rather an experiment towards an integrated film language.
