"Spare yet tactile, a mysterious mixture of lightness and gravity..." - J. Hoberman, the Village Voice

In a desolate, sun-scorched corner of the world, an elderly woman has come to see her beloved grandson, a young officer stationed at a remote military outpost. With the enemy just beyond the compound, she wanders the barracks, observing the routines of military life before making a sudden trip into the outlying countryside. Featuring a mesmerizing performance by Russian opera legend Galina Vishnevskaya, ALEXANDRA is a viscerally powerful new film from the great Alexander Sokurov.

This is the kind of thoughtful and thought provoking film that makes my Fandor subscription worth keeping. The role that the guardian-mother plays in Russian society is unnique and well worth exploring.
