  4. Ale/M's rating of the film Whispering Pages

    Gli spettri che popolano alcuni film di Sokurov sono gli stessi della grandiosa letteratura russa dell'Ottocento. Essi popolano i luoghi del “distacco dal sociale”. Lo spazio in cui agiscono non è propriamente la società ma i suoi margini. Se questa è il giorno esso è la sua notte o, piuttosto, il suo crepuscolo. La povertà di queste figure ne intacca la loro stessa sostanza, li priva della pienezza d'essere.

  5. Scott Barley's rating of the film Whispering Pages

  6. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Whispering Pages

    There is a certain Dickensian quality to Aleksandr Sokurov's WHISPERING PAGES, a film based on the work of Fyodor Dostoevsky, which follows a murderer through the streets of a Russian city, and a virtuous prostitute. Sokurov's films are like moving paintings - the hazy, washed out colors, slowly draining away into full black and white, create a haunting and evocative atmosphere.

  7. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Whispering Pages

    A severely stripped down adaptation of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, concentrating on scenes that are more often given short shrift. The sequence of figures jumping into an abyss is Sokurov's invention as far as I remember and works perfectly with what he selected from the source. Movement of actors and camera follows the same pace, pausing inexplicably, yet precisely when it should, and then crawling on.
