Alexandra movie poster

Dreamlike narrative in monochrome, a stout, slow, ponderous old lady visiting her grandson at a dry and dusty military camp in Chechnya, questioning his mission: “You can destroy. When will you learn to rebuild?” A Russian art film from the dreaded Alexander Sokurov, challengingly dull, uneventful, amorphous. The lead actress, opera soprano Galina Vishnevskaya (widow of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich), has an undeniable presence. 2007.
