Silent Souls (DVD)
Directed by Aleksei Fedorchenko
“A MYSTICAL MASTERPIECE. An astonishing, haunting, sensual, lyrical, bleak and ultimately beautiful road-trip movie.”
—David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
One of the most acclaimed films of 2011, Silent Souls (Ovsyanki) is a breathtakingly beautiful road-movie masterpiece. After the sudden death of his wife, tough guy Miron asks taciturn writer Aist to accompany him on a long journey to dispose of her remains according to the rituals of the Merya people—an ancient tribe from picturesque West-Central Russia. As the two friends traverse the evocatively bleak landscape with her body and a pair of caged birds, Miron fills the hours relating the most intimate details of his marriage—with unintended consequences. Brooding, poetic and provocative, Silent Souls is an exquisite work of post-Soviet cinema by director Aleksei Fedorchenko and renowned cinematographer Mikhail Krichman (Elena).
DVD Extras Include:
Gorgeous HD master, enhanced for widescreen viewing; 5.1 and stereo soundtracks; U.S. theatrical trailer.
