Мать и сын

Aleksandr Sokurov Russia, 1997

David Grillo's rating of the film Mother and Son

The way Sokurov uses painting to observe like other directors use music a flat ethereal voice in the background of Sokurov's beautiful observations ; son carries his mother like a sick child, the distance of the other side, the spirit of their connection moving further and further away from the world until he lets her go.
