(Russia, 2002) Director: Alexander Sokurov. Screenplay by: Anatoli Nikiforov. Cast: Sergei Dreiden, Maria Kuznetsova, Leonid Mozgovoy, Maxim Sergeyev.
Russian Ark is an amazing technical tour-de-force: the entire film, shot inside St Petersburg's Hermitage art gallery, is done in a single take by incredible Steadicam operator Tilman Büttner, (Run Lola Run). Much more than a museum tour, Russian Ark follows an eccentric French Marquise and an art lover who walk through the opulent halls, drifting back in time to see ghosts of the past from Catherine the Great to Nicholas II. One incredible set piece features a live orchestra and fancy dress ball on the eve of the revolution, that captures Russia's ambivalence over its past.
"An extraordinary film, one that captures three centuries of Russian culture and history in all its beauty, confusion, terror and majesty." - Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune. 96 min.
