Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Ménilmontant is a 1925 film written and directed by Dimitri Kirsanoff which takes its name from the Paris neighborhood of the same name.

It begins with a flurry of quick close-up shots depicting the axe murder of the parents of the protagonists, two girls. As young women, they are portrayed by Nadia Sibirskaïa, Kirsanoff's first wife, and Yolande Beaulieu; their mutual love interest is played by Guy Belmont. The film uses many other techniques that were relatively new at the time, including double exposure, and is remembered as a prime example of Italian Futurism in cinema.
