Russian Ark is not only a film of incomparable technical ambition; a sinuous, languorous, labyrinthine ramble, achieved in a single, astounding 96 minute digital take, that glides stealthily through the gilded splendours of the Hermitage at St Petersburg, guided by an 18th century French diplomat, with audience and a mumbling off-screen “spy” joined as spectators to a sumptuous array of painti... read more

Description: Russian filmmaker Alexander Sokurov broke boundaries with his dreamlike vision of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russian Ark. It's the first feature-length narrative film shot in a single take (on digital video, using a specially designed disc instead of tape). Russian Ark is shot from the point-of-view of an unseen narrator, as he ... (more)

“Russian Ark is not only a film of incomparable technical ambition; a sinuous, languorous, labyrinthine ramble, achieved in a single, astounding 96 minute digital take, that glides stealthily through the gilded splendours of the Hermitage at St Petersburg, guided by an 18th century French diplomat, with audience and a mumbling off-screen “spy” joined as spectators to a sumptuous array of paintings and sculptures (Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Canova..), classical concerts, a grand ball, historical pageants and figures, including a now young, now aged Empress Catherine II; it is also a pretentious, self-indulgent elaboration of the director Sokurov’s thematic concerns, a preposterous virtuoso display of costumes and choreography (marshalling a cast of almost a thousand); an extraordinary, pains” read more

"26/02/2013 Mielettömän suuri hatunnosto Sokuroville ja Tillman Büttnerille. Elokuva on siis kuvattu kokonaan yhdellä 96-minuuttisella otolla ilman leikkauksia. Kamera toimii nimettömän kertojan silminä aavemaisesti kummitellen pitkin Talvipalatsin käytäviä, tanssisaleja ja gallerioita. Suuri panostus ja harjoittelu näkyy ja kuuluu kaikkialla ja kasassa on ainutlaatuinen kokonaisuus. Salonkitanssit, taidehistorian keskustelut, Venäjän historia ja liveorkesterit tarraavat mukaansa eh"

"Russian Ark is a first-person account of a "time travel" through various facets of Russian history. Each scene is illustrated magnificently, with beautiful location settings and lavish costumes. Even more impressive, the entire film - approx. 97 minutes - was shot entirely on one take. Thus, I must give a special warm gesture to director of photography Tilman Büttner, who captures the whole adventure in numerous sweeping camera motions. The acting was also terrific; it's obvious that everyone w"

"It's basically a tour of the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. But the whole movie is shot in a single take (WHAT?!!) so I'm curious to see what this movie is going to be like. Viewed: June 11 2013 This movie is an interesting one. A one hour thirty minute movie, shot in one take. It flows through multiple time periods, all taking place in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. I loved this movie. A wonderful artistic experience, but I don't know how well I could recommend it. If you like art fil"
