seductive
24 May 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I do not know in which manner see a not Greek Orthodox Christian this film. but for an Orthodox believer, Monakh i bes is useful. as entertainment and as remember about the rules of Church. as answer to Ostrov and for the nice slices of Paterik. for the portrait of tsar Nikolay I and, sure, for the performances. sure, it is a comedy. and more. it is a precise portrait about the war between believer and devil. and only the knowledge of the Eastern tradition could give the support for understand the nuances and the references and the ironies and the circle who becomes frame of the story. the start point, sure, is the experience of Saint Ierarch John, archbishop of Novgorod, from the XII century. but the film gives the right colors to an episode who seems be only legend. and this does this film seductive.
