Alexandra

Loading...
Acclaimed director Alexander Sokurov's beautiful new film explores the enclosed all-male environment of a Russian troop regiment in war-torn Chechnya. In the oppressive heat of a remote military outpost, an old woman (legendary Russian opera star Galina Vishnevskaya) arrives in search of her twenty-seven-year-old grandson, whom she has not seen in seven years. What she discovers is a world devoid of warmth or comfort and with a constant undercurrent of violence, in which questions of life and death are decided every hour of every day. Exquisitely photographed and directed, Alexandra is an extraordinary examination of masculinity and the mental and physical scars wrought by conflict.

Élégie de la Traversée

Loading...
In Élégie de la traversée, Sokurov crosses vast terrain, sails the high seas, and stumbles through congested cities to arrive at the doors of the empty Boijmans Museum in Rotterdam. Only then does he discover that the goal of his voyage was to bask in the power of St. Mary's Square, a beautiful landscape by Peter Saenredam. In Rober, schastlivai͡a zhiznʹ, the director meditates on the work of French romantic artist Hubert Robert, whose paintings of lost ruins evoke the same nostalgia and lyricism of Sokurov's own moody films
