Director: Robin Hessman Russia/USA/UK, 2011, 87 min; Russian with subtitles; Blu-ray
An intimate epic that succeeds, because it does two things impeccably well:
It not only evocatively captures the Russian spirit and the yearnings of a generation, but it also masterfully chronicles the historic collapse of the Soviet Union and its complex aftermath. Not an easy thing to do in 87 minutes. But director Robin Hessman, who grew up in the United States but spent eight formative years in Russia (it shows), somehow pulls it off. Clearly in command of her subject, she uses amazing home movies, historic news footage and revealing interviews with five everyday people. We see how profoundly events before and after the Iron Curtain have affected these well-spoken, intelligent individuals. By the end, the film has served up a distinctly Russian-flavored mix of nostalgia and disillusionment that never fails to be engrossing.--San Francisco Chronicle
