Die Lebensgeschichte des amerikanischen Revolutionärs und Journalisten John Reed ("Zehn Tage, die die Welt erschütterten"), der, vom Beispiel der russischen Revolution angeregt, für soziale Gerechtigkeit kämpfte, aber in der UdSSR selbst das schrittweise Scheitern seiner Ideale mitansehen mußte. Reed starb 33-jährig in Moskau und wurde an der Kreml-Mauer bestattet. Das aufwändige Epos verbindet die Geschichte der kommunistischen Bewegung in den USA mit der melodramatischen Love-Story zwischen dem Helden und der schönen Louise Bryant. Auf einer zusätzlichen dokumentarischen Ebene reflektiert der Film das Verhältnis von Fiktion und authentischer Erinnerung. Glänzend gespielt und inszeniert. [film-dienst]

24 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film tells the story of director Mario Suarez's quest to make the ultimate tango film. Lonely after his wife (one of the film's stars) has left him, Mario must find the themes that will hold the film together, while simultaneously permitting his musicians and dancers the freedom of expression that is necessary to satisfy the tango-hungry Argentine audience. Things become complicated when Mario falls in love with Elena, a beautiful and talented young dancer who is the girlfriend of the powerful and dangerous Angelo Larroca, an investor in the picture. And Mario's creative vision is challenged by his investors when he plans a scene that recreates Argentina's dark years of political suppression and "disappearances."

Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers
