Mother And Son

4

Aleksandr Sokurov has directed over 40 films, including A Humble Life (bundled here as a welcome bonus), and this early companion to 2003’s Father And Son. Don’t expect plot: little happens as a son (Aleksei Ananishnov) cares for his dying mother (Gudrun Geyer). Instead, Sokurov paints rapturous, haunting images. “I destroy real nature and create my own,” the director once said. This is cine-poetry designed to make you see the world afresh.
