55/365 Bronenosets Potyomkin

Based on actual events which resulted in a riot when the crew of the Battleship Potemkin was given rotten meat to eat, this film is a classic of early cinema.

Cert: PG

Original Soviet Union Release: 1925 (According to IMDb: "The film was rejected for a UK cinema certificate in 1926 by the BBFC following fears of working class insurrection, and remained banned until January 1954 when it was finally released with an X certificate.")
