Silent Souls (15)

(Aleksei Fedorchenko, 2010, Rus) Igor Sergeev, Yuriy Tsurilo, Yuliya Aug. 78 mins

Even by Russian standards, this lyrical road movie is a strange world of its own. It's a journey back in time, as much as across a remote landscape, with a friend helping his boss to give his deceased wife her last rites, according to their ancient tribal ways. Along the drive, we're steeped in strange folklore involving vodka, rivers, small birds and ornamental pubic hair. Is it for real? Or an elaborate joke told with a very straight face? Does it matter?

The Five Year Engagement (15)

(Nicholas Stoller, 2012, Us) Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Chris Pratt. 124 mins

The obstacle to true love is built into the title of this romcom, but it's at least smartly handled, as high-flyer Blunt keeps her fiance in perpetual limbo.

Where Do We Go Now? (12A)

(Nadine Labaki, 2011, Fra/Leb/Egy/Ita) Claude Baz Moussawbaa, »

★★★★☆ Aleksei Fedorchenko beguiles and rewards with his lyrical meditation on the passage of time, Silent Souls (Ovsyanki, 2010).

Silent Souls Review: A Profound Meditation On Life and Death

21 June 2012 10:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

The passage of time is a crazy thing – it has the ability to swallow up not only whole lives, but entire civilisations and cultures. In Silent Souls, by our sheer bemusement at much of what is going on, director Aleksei Fedorchenko illustrates this with a beautifully calm, trained eye.

When lonely middle-aged man Aist (Igor Sergeev) receives a call from his boss, Miron (Yuriy Tsurilo), that his wife Tanya (Yuliya Aug) has died, the pair embark on a quest to give her a tranquil final resting place. Living in Russia’s town of Neya, the two identify themselves as belonging to the ancient Meryan peoples, and their adherence to the traditions therein informs the entirety of their road trip.

Bringing a pair of birds along for the trip, they sit in their cage and serve as a metaphor, for the two men are similarly confined by »
