Mother and Son

Brief, but still quite slow (it is Russian, after all), this poignant drama tells of a dying mother nursed by her devoted son. The film takes its time establishing the near spiritual realtionship between these two characters. The cinematography is gorgeous (it is Russian, after all), looking at times like a vibrant painting. Director Alexander Sokurov is considered a master filmmaker, but this (his 14th film) is the first to make waves in America. In Russian with English subtitles. 73 minutes
