“MOTHER AND SON is a love story about the deep affection that exists between a mother and her son, which Sokurov portrays as the greatest love in the world: primal, life-giving and pure. The Mother and Son are seen within and against a landscape of melancholy beauty, which Sokurov uses like a German Romantic painter. When the Mother dies, the Son is left entirely alone in a world which offers little comfort. From the director of RUSSIAN ARK.” – International Film Circuit
