Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

Russia, 2017, one hundred years after the Revolution. Through interlocking stories, with the common denominator of a building erected as a symbol of the wreckage, Aleksei German Jr. puts his signature in a film as demanding as it is fascinating. Displaying a majestic visual power (justly awarded at the last Berlinale), the camera slides between the material and cultural ruins of Russia/the USSR/the world, scrutinized by means of an unbelieving perspective and an entirely free narrative structure that can make one think of the happy heterodoxy that bonds such filmmakers as Berlanga, Angelopoulos, Buñuel or Iosseliani. As in many films by these masters, German goes for a skeptical portrait, not devoid of humor, of a world from which it would be senseless to leave anything (and perhaps it was always like this), where things no longer seem important, and where present, past, fiction and reality coexist in one same plane, inextricable, while they continuously feed our uncertainty towards the future.
