Described by H.G. Wells as \"one of the greatest and most beautiful films I have ever seen,\" this was Vertov's most personal work and the capstone of his career. <![CDATA[<i>]]>Three Songs About Lenin<![CDATA[</i>]]> reveals the Soviet leader as seen through the eyes of the people, represented by the three songs. The first, \"My Face Was In A Dark Prison\", concerns the life of a young Muslim woman. \"We Loved him\" deals with Lenin's life and death. The third song, \"In A Big City Of Stone\", shows the accomplishments of his rule.
More important, however, are the exhilarating beauty of Vertov's images and the majesty of his filmmaking skills, which produced a film called by The New York Times \"a work of unusual beauty and emotional exaltation.\"
