Russia According to Ekaterina

La Russie selon Ekaterina
Director: Philippe Mac Gaw
FR 2019142' ru, en, fr

An impossible love story between the narrator from Paris and a young woman – Ekaterina Tretyakova, descendant of the noble family of Orlov. It takes place behind the Ural mountains. Navigating between poetic illustrations of passion and schizophrenic wanderings in a hostile environment, the film draws an intimate and heart-breaking portrait of Russia.

The director strongly believes that the story was driven by some unknown and uncontrollable forces.

Curator's point of view: This picture surprised me and made me doubt the fact that I am watching a documentary. This is a true classic novel worthy of the pen of Tolstoy, Kuprin and Dostoevsky combined.
