  1. mubianer's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    Because it's so low budget, something Sokurov gets the most out of, it feels like being there in a Russian village in the 20's. I think the last part is a bit unfocused though.

  4. Sander Moyson's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    Life as existence through time. The wounds of history. Two lost souls between past and future. Our rootedness, uprootedness. This work of art reveals what cinema can be: a writing through image and sound. A meticulous composition of raw materiality in a poetic logic, letting all elements speak with each other in silence, letting them dance with each other in silence.

  5. sekmadieniaislyja's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    It feels like watching a moving photo album in slow motion,made from simple yet delicate,gloomy pictures.

  6. nematomaranka's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    maybe this film is not even a film. cause it feels more real than enything I've seen in reality.

  7. Muhammed asif m's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    A great experimentation in visual poetry

  8. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    La atmósfera calmada aunque deprimente, es sin duda lo más poderoso en esta ópera prima de Sokurov. El retorno de un soldado revolucionario a la rutina está embargada por una condición trastocada. Parece que ni el amor resuelve este pesar que lo enferma física como existencialmente. El tema del suicidio (o el sacrificio) como un discurso heredado por las normas revolucionarias. La crítica es tan histórica como actual

  9. Joks's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    This is probably the most comparable to Tarkovsky out of all the Sokurov films i've seen. It's quite reminiscent of Mirror at times, but even more bizarre and abstract. Not perfect of course, but very impressive for an early effort, and it's full of strangely haunting moments.

  10. Corriel's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    Contemplative and very empty; a good way to fall asleep and a disappointment.

  11. Daniel Melnikov's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

  12. The Africa Film Project's rating of the film The Lonely Voice of Man

    A simple story elegantly and beautifully filmed in a style that none other than Sokurov can create. One of his early works but also one of his best.
