A 19th century French aristocrat, notorious for his scathing memoirs about life in Russia, travels through the Russian State Hermitage Museum and encounters historical figures from the last 200+ years.
Aleksandr Sokurov has made a great documentary about the aging author Solzhenitsyn. The part when they walk in the forest outside Solzhenitsyns home is absolutely wonderful. Two very wise men talk about the essentialitys of life, here in the shape of a tree. "The tree is the only perfect lifeform", says Sokurov and neither Solzhenitsyn nor the viewer can say anything different after having seen The Knot.
