  • The Burning Crucible

    1923. France. Directed by Ivan Mosjoukine (Mozzhukhin), Alexandre Volkoff. Screenplay by Mosjoukine. With Mosjoukine, Nathalie Lissenko, Nicolas Koline. A commercial failure, this film earned Mosjoukine critical praise and solidified his reputation in French cinema as both a star and auteur, and perhaps even as a rival to Chaplin. Film theorist Riccioto Canudo proclaimed it “stunning as the first ballets of Diaghilev.” New color-tinted Desmet 35mm print restored by La Cinematheque Francaise with the collaboration of the Franco-American Fund - DGA MPA SACEM WGA 110 min.
