PresentationThe film montage has evolved enormously in parallel to the film language itself. Thanks to technical advances, it has ceased to be the invisible element of classical cinema to become one of the expressive tools. The montage technique transformed primitive cinema allowing the elaboration of more complex narratives, which alternated voices and times, giving rise to the so-called classic cinema.
