Celluloid Dreams The Directors Label

   

The profoundly moving story about the deep and tender affection between a mother and her son. As the young man nurses his dying mother, they recall better times, strengthening themselves against the impact of a separation they know is coming soon… Amidst a vast green landscape of haunting beauty, Sokurov’s carefully composed images look like canvas paintings, highly poetic and emotional. Combined with an astounding use of sound, the film provokes an awakening of the senses to the world of nature, human relationships, and death.
