Storyline

Inspired by Flaubert's Madame Bovary, Sokurov's Save and Protect recalls the most crucial events of Emma's decline and fall, including affairs with an aristocratic and a student. Focusing on passion from a woman's perspective and downplaying plot, Sokurov explores his subject in exquisite detail, capturing not only the heat of passion but also the quiet moments before and after and the innocent sensuousness of the body. ( Original Title - Spasi i sokhrani) Written by Anonymous

Astounding
10 August 2001 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This is clearly a very original film. Sokurov uses "Madame Bovary" as his inspiration, and transforms hidden desires and longing of the protagonist into metaphysical beauty. You can't say there's much "happening" in the film. It owes more to painting than to drama, and that's what makes it so stunning. The inner life of the characters is still the centerpoint. Sokurov and his photography team turn reality into something akin of icon-art, twisting and distorting visual image into fantastic forms. Simply: marvelous.
