Anna Karenina (Vronsky's Story)

Karen Schachnasarow - Shakhnazarov – 2017

Which should take precedence - passion or duty? How do we choose? And who gets to judge? These are eternal questions, remorselessly thrust upon us by life. Anna Karenina made her choice, leaving her son Sergei to grow up struggling to understand why his mother took such a tragic and terrible path, and Count Vronsky haunted by the memory of the woman for whose death he still blames himself 30 years later.

When Miron’s beloved wife Tanya passes away, he asks his best friend Aist to help him say goodbye to her according to the rituals of the Merja culture, an ancient Finno-Ugric tribe from Lake Nero, a picturesque region in West-Central Russia.

Rusalka - Mermaid

Anna Melikian – 2008

Once upon a time … is the best way to tell the incredible story of the adventures of the ‘mermaid’ Alisa in the Russian capital Moscow. There was a time when Alisa lived by the sea. Her life was nothing out of the ordinary. She dreamed of one day dancing in a ballet; she sang in a children’s choir and attended a special school, because, at the age of six, she suddenly stopped speaking. None of which would be noteworthy, were it not for the fact that Alisa possessed a remarkable gift: the ability to fulfil wishes. More

Ejforija - Euphoria

Ivan Vyrypaev – 2006

In an amazingly beautiful place, on the bank of the wide Don, in a remote, half-destroyed village, surrounded by only steppe for hundreds of miles, a real drama takes place. An unexpected passionate love between a young man and a married woman literally destroys the lives of not only the main characters, but also their close ones. More

Russkij kovcheg - Russian Ark

Alexander Sokurow – 2002

A film shot in on shot with no break. On a winter's day, a small party of men and women arrive by horse-drawn carriage to a minor, side entrance of the Winter Palace. The narrator meets another spectral but visible outsider, "the European", and follows him through numerous rooms of the palace. Each room manifests a different period of Russian history, but the periods are not in chronological order. More

Das Mädchen mit der Hutschachtel - Devuska s korobkoj

Boris Barnet – 1927

Die bald darauf von Samuel Goldwyn für Hollywood entdeckte Anna Stėn als Titelheldin: ein Mädchen, das mit der Grossmutter in den schneebedeckten Aussenbezirken Moskaus lebt, in einem Hutladen im Zentrum arbeitet und viel Zeit damit verbringt, ihrem liebeskranken Nachbarn zu entkommen. Wohnungsknappheit und ein Lotterielos (erhalten statt des Lohns) führen zu einer Hochzeit und turbulenten Verwicklungen. Bernard Eisenschitz: „Das Mädchen mit der Hutschachtel rechtfertigt Boris Barnets Ruf als Begründer der Sowjetkomödie. More

Shinel - Der Mantel

Grigori Kosinzew Leonid Trauberg – 1926

A minor clerk, Bashmachkin, replaces his threadbare overcoat with one made from the finest materials he can afford. Then one evening ruffians beat him up and steal his cherished new garment. The actors’ highly stylized gestures border on modern dance, and Bashmachkin’s world, especially as he begins to lose his grasp on reality, is powerfully rendered with looming shadows, oblique camera angles and eccentric architecture. More

Mat - Die Mutter

Wsewolod Pudowkin – 1926

In this film, the mother of Pavel Vlasov is drawn into the revolutionary conflict when her husband and son find themselves on opposite sides during a worker's strike. After her husband dies during the failed strike, she betrays her son's ideology in order to try, in vain, to save his life. He is arrested, tried in what amounts to a judicial farce, and sentenced to heavy labor in a prison camp. During his incarceration, his mother aligns herself with him and his ideology and joins the revolutionaries. More

Bronenosec Potemkin - Panzerkreuzer Potemkin (Flyer)

Bronenosec Potemkin - Panzerkreuzer Potemkin

Sergej M. Eisenstein – 1925

Der Revolutionsfilm schlechthin. Wer immer Bronenosec Potemkin zum „besten Film aller Zeiten“ erklärt, soll, über die Rekord-Deklaration hinweg, nicht vergessen, dass dieser „Klassiker“ in dem, was ihn auszeichnet, ein Werk von Umsturz und Enthusiasmus bleibt. Glorios der Widerspruch, dass Eisenstein für einen Revolutionsfilm die Struktur klassischer Tragödie mit Einheit von Zeit und Ort, fünf Akten und Protagonisten wählt. Letztere jedoch sind Chor der Massen geworden. More

Mr. West

Lew Kuleschow – 1924

Mit seinen Montagetheorien hat Lew Kuleschow dem Revolutionsfilm das Fundament gelegt, mit Mr. West öffnet er ihm die Pforten. Im realen, verschneiten Moskau sieht man die Akteure einander auf Motorrädern, in Autos und Pferdeschlitten verfolgen, Strassen auf Telefonleitungen überqueren und Gliedmassen wie Rufzeichen in die Höhe werfen. Mit der Erwartung, auf Wilde und Banditen zu stoßen, reist ein US-Senator ins Land der Bolschewiki. Das Alte und das Neue: eine action comedy mit Montage. More
