About Russian soul
21 January 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A important film not only for beauty, script or acting but for the delicate art to transmit the original form of Russian soul. The details like pieces of a fascinating mosaic of expectation, illusions and regrets. The stranger like butcher of chimeric life in which every day makes a delicate and secret sense for ordinary existence.

Flavor from Chekhov atmosphere, shadows from Nina Berberova's art, parts of Lyudmila Ulietskaya's vision, memories from Dostoevsky deep tensioned silence, drops Mikhail Bulgakov are elements to recreate a world very soft, fragile and suffocated by ambiguous passion.

Not the Slavic air is important, not the words with Anna Karenina's similar sound, but the discover of a magnificent world grace of superb Sandrine Bonnair interpretation.

"Ispoved neznakomtsu" is a beautiful sad story but, more important is exploration of sensitivity of a strange, charming world.
