Odessa Steps — A dream destination for every movie buff

Battleship Potemkin is a 1925 Soviet silent film directed by Sergei Eisenstein which presents a dramatised version of the mutiny that occurred in 1905 when the crew of the Russian battleship Potemkin rebelled against its officers. The film was the ultimate expression of his ideas, which culminated in the last scene, the Odessa Steps sequence. The sequence incarnates Eisenstein’s theory of dialectical montage by which the meaning is generated by the collision of opposing shots.The actual Odessa Steps is a giant stairway in Odessa, which is considered the formal entrance into the city from the direction of the sea, and its most famous symbol.
