This article examines the ways in which the Futurist adoration of the machine found expression in the cinema. Two tendencies are distinguished : first, that of the machine as machine, as a non-human invention that can become charged with symbolic meaning (from the eroticism of Charles Dekeukeleire’s Impatience to the proletarian revolution in S.M. Eisenstein’s Strike ) ; and second, that of the new machine as a new being with a human form which quickly becomes a threat to its creator.
