Father and Son
A Father and his Son have lived alone for years in their own private world of co-dependency, full of memories and daily rituals. Now that the Son has reached manhood, the two loving men sense the anguish of inevitable separation. Each longs to do what’s best for the other without hurt.
As in his other films, Alexander Sokurov reduces the action to the essential. In several concentrated scenes, he tells the story of a hermetic life that protects its inhabitants as much as it imprisons them.
