Октябрь (Десять дней, которые потрясли мир)

"October (Ten Days That Shook The World)" -- 1927

This is the whole Sergei Eisenstein film. There is of course plenty of dramatic license taken. For example, the Storming of the Winter Palace scenes are not based on the actual events, instead they are based on a pageant presented in Palace Square on the third anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. Still, it's a remarkable film of a remarkable series of events.
