Storyline

Anna and Petros, a Greek couple who recently moved to an industrial Siberian town on account of Petros' work, are shocked to discover Anna is pregnant with no prior intercourse. Did she cheat? Are they victims of a conspiracy? Or blessed with a miracle? Looking for a logical explanation to their situation, Petros starts distrusting Anna, who chooses to embrace the pregnancy, turning to religion to cope. Their previously unshakeable bond starts to falter and cracks begin to show, as their relationship becomes the battleground between the rational and the spiritual. Set against the striking frozen landscapes of Siberia, "Still River" is a haunting, touching suspense drama about love, trust and faith struggling in the face of doubt.

puzzle
27 April 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The basic sin - it is too, too long. And you have the impression, maybe fake, than this is a motif of a large embroidery of improvisations. It is beautiful and dark and cold and well crafted in many parts. The cinematography is well and the story, if you ignore the twists, is real nice. But this puzzle has the sin to propose too many aspects, desiring say everything. Or the story is simple, fragile, powerful and coherent , great without any ornament. A film about loneliness in foreign country, isolated, atractted by new traditions, slices of magical realism, Orthodoxy and pressure, a film about love and trust . Short, beautiful, mysterious, dark, bitter. And , in some measure, profound useful for the proposed questions.
