Opinions On The Film

“(...) It is magnificent to see and hear Sokurov – a wise, placid and self-taught man – talk about his past and the present state of Russia in the new, excellent documentary by Leena Kilpeläinen. The atmospheric, intense and even spiritual samples of the director’s production supplement the whole, turning it into a polyphones dialogue between the artist, his works, the Motherland, and history.“
Lauri Timonen
Midnight Sun Film Festival
“There is an atmosphere of confidence in this documentary. Sokurov gives an account of his lifelong battle for the integrity of his art. The interview footage is eloquent, and the many illuminating clips have been selected with a good sense of judgment. This is an excellent introduction into the films of Sokurov, and it makes me want to see or revisit his films. I have seen many but not all.“
