This Pudovkin classic and Eisenstein's "October" were both commissioned
to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 1917 revolution. The two
movies work very well as companions for one another, since Eisenstein
concentrated on the major historical events of the revolution, while
"The End of St. Petersburg" looks at the era through a story involving
some everyday characters. Eisenstein's movie is deservedly well-known,
and it is probably the better of the two, but Pudovkin's well-crafted
film is a fully worthy companion, and it deserves to be better
The story is well-conceived and, at least given the perspective from
which it was made, it works well. The main character is a young man
from the country who heads to the great city of St. Petersburg to find
work, and who instead learns a series of unexpected and not always
pleasant lessons. As the young man, Ivan Chuvelyov does not have a lot
of screen presence, but he does convey sincerity and honesty.
The other two major characters are a proletarian agitator played by
Aleksandr Chistyakov, and his strong-willed wife, played by Vera
Baranovskaya. Both of them have good presence, and make their
characters stand out. The roles are not really all that complex, but
they are used well in the story.
It's understood that it is often necessary to set aside political
perspectives in order to appreciate Soviet-era Russian movies. There
are a few somewhat heavy-handed details here, mostly in the portrayal
of capitalists, and occasionally in the titles. But you could easily
find techniques used in today's Hollywood movies that are much more
labored or manipulative. Further, movies like "The End of St.
Petersburg" go a long ways towards explaining how and why Russia turned
to Leninism and communism with such determination.
Perhaps movies like this will now be of interest only to those with an
enthusiasm for history, but for those who do take such an interest, it
should not be a disappointment.
