Based on A. Galych's play "Matrosskaya Tishina", "Papa" tells a story of a Jewish father who dreamed of seeing his son perform on a stage in front of huge audiences, he dreamed of seeing him as the greatest violinist of his time. To achieve the goal he taught his son Dodik how to play the violin from the yearly age. When Dodik grew up he left the small town he and his father lived in to study in the Moscow Conservatory leaving his past behind. But one day he has to choose either to loose his father or everything he has achieved. Written by
an old play. extraordinary acting. a story in frame of a gloomy period. surely, Papa is one of films who must see. for its force and grace. for its special beauty - reflection of emotions and fights, for extraordinary images and for music. it is Vladimir Mashkov movie and you feel that, scene by scene, more deeply. a film about dreams, choices and happiness. a Russian story extraordinary not only for itself but for the link between characters, past of original play, for the emotions as paintings in sand. and for something who has not place in the words body. maybe, it is far to be original. but it can be a form of revelation/wake-up for a part of its public. because, it is a Russian film. but its message is universal.
