Angels of Revolution

Like in Aleksei German Jr.’s Under Electric Clouds –screened in the last edition of the Berlin Film Festival and also programmed in this Bafici–, Angels of Revolution deals with Russian history –or in this case Soviet, to be more precise. If German believes any Russian period we observe will offer a post-apocalyptic landscape, for Fedorchenko the years of expansion and cultural evangelization of communist culture triggers a comedy-charged story about the Soviet education of a Northern tribe of the USSR in the Thirties. Fedorchenko addresses the subject with several turns, first in a kaleidoscope way with stories that pause and spike to the point of referring to the shoot of Sergei Eisenstein’s Que viva Mexico. This audacious filmmaker’s ingredients include tableaux vivants, an actress of such brilliant beauty as Daria Ekamasova, a Wes Anderson-like use of framings and colors, and a sense of humor with a remarkable capability for the absurd that reveals the political stupidity –or just plain stupid– behind the “intensive reeducations” of the people.
