In this silent Soviet documentary, a man wanders around Moscow, Kharkov, Kiev, and Odessa with a camera slung over his shoulder, documenting urban life with dazzling innovation. A towering achievement in experimental cinema.

Like the description says, "few films better enable a viewer to feel the massive power of editing than this towering achievement in cinema." I would add that this film is perhaps the most essential of all the Soviet Montage films.
