The Russian Ark Synopsis: Told in one fluid shot, a tale, which floats like a dreamlike journey through the spaces of the majestic Hermitage in St. Petersburg, engaging real and imagined characters from Russian and European history. The nameless protagonist, a 19th-century French diplomat, guides the audience through a lost, sumptuous dream–meant to be considered and experienced as the Enlightenment period. The film-staged among some of the masterpieces of the Western Art tradition–climaxes in a pageant of color, motion, and music. For Sokurov, the Hermitage–home to generations of Romonovs and repository of so much Russian history–is the ark of the Russian soul, guarding it affectionately until the world sees better days. – from Rotten Tomatoes
