Father and Son (Otets i syn/ Îòåö è ñûí) (Ru ssia/2003)
With Andrei Shchetinin and Aleksei Nejmyshev
Father and Son won the FIPRESCI prize at the Cannes Film Festival with the following note from the critics who gave the award: “For brilliant images and the director’s original way of depicting the powerful bond that unites a father and a son.” The film is part of a trilogy begun with Mother and Son, and will end with the planned Two Brothers and a Sister. With one of the most poetic films ever made, Sokorov shows that intensity of emotions and imagery associated with human intimacy does not need to be associated with sexuality (which some critics read into the film’s premise, incorrectly, according to the director himself).
WINNER: Cannes Film Festival FIPRESCI Prize Russian Guild of Film Critics Golden Aries for Art Direction.
“ACHINGLY BEAUTIFUL… dreamily seductive and profoundly disturbing”–BBC
“LIKE A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM. Its images and emotions are vivid, disquieting and also hermetic, and while it may frustrate your desire for clear storytelling and psychological transparency, it has an intensity that surpasses understanding.” -New York Times
