Mother and Son (Mat i syn/ Ìàòü è ñûí)(Russia/1997)
With Gudrun Geyer and Alexei Ananishnov Mother and Son is a love story about the deep affection that exists between a mother and her son, which Sokurov portrays as the greatest love in the world: primal, life-giving and pure. The characters are seen within and against a landscape of melancholy beauty, which Sokurov uses like a German Romantic painter. When the mother dies, the son is left entirely alone in a world which offers little comfort.
“ONE OF THE GREATEST FILMS EVER SEEN!”- Combustible Celluloid
“SOKUROV IS WHAT CINEMA CAN BE AT ITS GREATEST!”- Susan Sontag
“**** One of those rare works that extends the art of film, suggesting for all its melancholy that movies do have a future.” – Dave Kehr, DAILY NEWS
