Mat i Syn

Mother and Son

(Germany/Russia, 1997, 71 minutes)

A son takes precious care of his dying mother. Painterly, oblique moodpiece that has no narrative to speak of and resolves itself into a solemn, somber series of breathtakingly photographed sequences.

Starring Gudrun Geyer and Alexei Ananishnov.
