Sands Films Cinema Club: Avant Garde Double Bill

Überfall – Ménilmontant Avant Garde Double Bill  – Films of 1928

Überfall –Film -1928 -21 minutes – Dir. Ernö Metzner- Weimar Republic

The film centers on the struggles of a German citizen who happens upon a counterfeit coin lying in a gutter. The opening sequence of the movie gives a brief glimpse into the notion that the coin might be “cursed,” as another passerby is struck down by a car while reaching for the coin in the middle of the road. Although the finder of the coin is at first glad, he soon regrets ever having picked it up.

 

 

Ménilmontant – Film – 1926 – 36 minutes – Dir.  Dimitri Kirsanoff – France

Ménilmontant is a 1926 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.[1] The film uses many other techniques that were relatively new at the time, including double exposure.[2] This film won many awards such as the best acting award.

Prominent film critic Pauline Kael said that Menilmontant was her favorite film of all time.
