Bath Film Festival - Silent Souls


Please purchase your own ticket.


Silent Souls / Ovsyanki
Director: Aleksei Fedorchenko
Russia, USA | 2010 | 72m | 15 | sub-titles
Rondo Theatre, 6.50pm | £7/£5
with: Yuliya Aug, Larisa Damaskina, Olga Dobrina
“A beautiful piece of work: heart-rending, atmospheric
and truly poignant.” - Empire. “…thrillingly dense
and allusive, and the elegiac finale maintains the
overall air of mystery while beautifully bringing all the
disparate threads together.” - Time Out. “This delicate
film merges ethnology and fiction into an intoxicating
mélange of visual poetry.” - These
are a small sample of the enthusiastic reviews that
greeted this film when it was released. It tells of a
grieving husband who is travelling with his wife’s
body to perform the last rites for her according to his
ancestors’ tradition. He is accompanied by his friend
and boss to whom he tells the story of their courtship,
their lovemaking and the beauty of their marriage. Part
road movie, part poetic piece with dry Russian humour,
this is an unjustly overlooked film, and a joy to watch

Plus: The Game Martin Janiec | Poland | 5m
