alexander sokurov mother and son

It is thus unsurprising that he reached for Friedrich’s sublime landscapes for inspiration, the project of romantic art being (as identified by Hölderlin) to exacerbate the real in order to show what is hidden beyond: in this case, God. Aleksandr Sokurov’s Mother and Son (1997) contains examples of what I am calling the transcendental time-image. In Mother and Son, death is thematised through the mother’s fate, but also through the network of allusions of the romantic representations, and the proximate nature of anamorphosis and the Vanitas as a genre (think of the anamorphic skull in Holbein’s amply commented The Ambassadors). There he became friends with Tarkovsky and was deeply influenced by his film Mirror. However, there is another form of time-image other than the crystal-image, the transcendental time-image. A father (Father) and his son Aleksei share a roof-top apartment in an unidentified seaside city. This is what Fredric Jameson has identified in other Sokurov films as “l’emploi du temps”,6 a time of routine and contemplation, perambulatory or fixed, which never seems to end – nor ever to start, for that matter. Thanks for subscribing! It is however the film’s treatment of time, rather than its fabled visuals, which calls today for further inquiry. Directed by Aleksandr Sokurov. Apparently, it was supposed to be the first part of a trilogy, which was complemented with Sokurov’s later work Father and Son (2003). Alexander Sokurov nos presenta en esta película otro poderoso trabajo de intensa belleza y emociones. Jacques Rancière, “Le cinéma comme la peinture?”. He did so by demonstrating the greater proximity of Sokurov’s Tikhiye stranitsy (Whispering Pages, 1994) with the tradition in turn-of-the-century photographs for a flattening of space in order to move away from representational realism, rather than with the painterly tradition per se. His films, in a most transparent way, marked a departure, a retreat from the social sphere in these years of failed and aborted reforms and socio-economic turmoil, their hazy, ghostly aesthetics and the characters that float through rather than inhabit them being a direct reflection of the despondence and powerlessness felt by the director. © 2021 Time Out England Limited and affiliated companies owned by Time Out Group Plc. They have lived alone for years in their own private world, full of memories and daily rites. As Jacques Rancière has pointed out, there exists, in the films of Sokurov, a fundamental contradiction: between the undeniable technological and artistic experimentation in the director’s works, and the often reactionary, conservative views he holds in interviews.2 One could also point out to the discrepancy between Sokurov the aesthete and Sokurov the pragmatic actor of the cultural sphere, often obliquely paying lip service to an unlikely master while posing as a detached, a-political artist. Though this sublime morphed into a different form of affect, reaching its more appeased, spiritualist form, in Mother and Son, the helplessness and pain of the son remain nonetheless. Many have pointed out to the a-chronological and “fairy tale” nature of the film. Elena Gracheva, “Kolybelnaya” in Arkus Lyubov (ed.). A time of waiting, possibly outside of time. In his documentary (think only of Sovietskaya Elegiya [Soviet Elegy, 1989]) Sokurov laid the Soviet heritage to rest in a famous series of tableaus of its leaders cross-dissolving on top of one another, leaving a hapless, blob-like Boris Yeltsin (whom Sokurov knew well and even momentarily attempted to “enlight”, as he recounts in his collection of essays V tsentre okeana [St. Petersburg: Amfora, 2012]) to face the task of running a crumbling empire. Even the soundtrack does not quite contradict this temporal indeterminacy, signifying little in terms of narrative progression. Which leads us back to Mother and Son’s treatment of time – and its meaning – proper. As Elena Gracheva notes, in Sokurov, art is what renders the invisible visible, but without stirring or breaking down the flatness of the cover that warrants the mystery’s integrity – thereby underlining the importance of bi-dimensionality in painting and cinema.3 Sokurov also made disparaging comments about modernism and twentieth century art at large, lamenting its loss of tradition. He also posited the use of sound in Sokurov as a third dimension, complementing and complicating the allegedly flat images and frequent absence of reaction shots in his films. His father was a Red Army veteran of WW2. With a visually stunning, quiet intensity, director Alexander Sokurov awakens the senses to the world of nature, human relationships, and death in this film about the poignant last hours of a dying mother and the son who cares for her. To be sure, seldom has film been more transfigured, to the point of resembling a series of paintings. He watches her sleep, takes her for a walk (or rather carries her), reads to her, gives her medicine, and, when she falls asleep, goes for a walk alone.

Since Sokurov envisages the twentieth century as having lost this transcendental ability, we can interpret his aesthetic project in Mother and Son as the antidote to contemporary art: a blending of religious traditions with “natural religion” – as expressed in the painterly sublime.

A promise is hinted at – and articulated later in the more triumphant if equally melancholy Russkiy kovcheg (Russian Ark, 2002) – of a renewed faith, and the possibility for these “eternal souls” to sail forever. Otets i syn) is a 2003 Russian drama film directed by Alexander Sokurov. He too is absent when his mother dies (in The Second Circle, the son arrives too late). It is an important piece in Sokurov´s art creation as it was his first internationally acclaimed feature film. One that nests itself in the crack following the apocalypse (the deluge, the fire, as in his friend Andrey Tarkvosky’s films to whom his own are so often inaccurately compared) and preceding rebirth. In his Cahiers article “Le cinéma comme la peinture?”, Rancière challenged the lofty spiritual aspirations of Sokurov by dismantling the very notion of bi-dimensionality and “pictoriality” in his films – and the rejection of the 20th century contained therein. The question “what could have motivated Sokurov, the mournful, but vibrant filmmaker of films such as Days of the Eclipse, to retreat into a cinema increasingly preoccupied with death and contemplation, through the 1990s?” is thus correlated to the equally problematic “how is a superb chamber artist like Sokurov […] moved […] to reflect on the lives of ‘great men’ like Lenin, Hitler and Hirohito?”5. The film begins before the first scene and ends after the last, with the sound of wind in the trees and the songs of birds. Sokurov’s film shows us what happens not when the story is over, but before it has started, in which humans who had the misfortune of living in the “wrong time” (or their descendants), can see, at least, the dignity in their death, until (or rather, and again, before) Empire Come.

He graduated from the History Department of the Nizhny Novgorod University in 1974 and entered one of the VGIK studios the following year. At the time of the film’s release, Sokurov exalted the bi-dimensionality and flatness of the cinematic image, relating it to the painterly tradition – specifically to that of the religious icon – elevating cinema as art. With Mother and Son, Sokurov posited himself as a “therapist of souls” for some, while reminding others of a forgotten function of art. There is little question that, after the funeral of Krug vtoroy (The Second Circle, 1990) and the ghost of Chekhov in Kamen (The Stone, 1992), through his use of distorting lenses and mirrors in Mother and Son, Sokurov had accomplished yet another memento mori. In this film, the feeling of oppression is everywhere: not only in the faces of the main characters, not only in the claustrophobic, dimly-lit … Plot.

Fredric Jameson, “History and Elegy in Sokurov”. Even the film’s carefully produced sound design, itself replicating the sensation of a cotton-like coating, enshrouded the whole (including the viewer) like a funeral veil. Mother tells the story of a dying mother and her absolutely devoted son. Nonetheless, this despondence and sorrow fuelled the artist’s Muse – The Second Circle and Mother and Son being perhaps his two greatest films. Conversely, there was undeniably a vibrant, ebullient (juvenile, almost) quality to Sokurov’s Perestroika films (Skorbnoe beschustviye [Mournful Insensitivity, 1982, released 1986], Dni zatmeniya [Days of the Eclipse, 1986, released 1987], and Spasi i sokhrani [Save and Protect, 1989]).

In this paper, I will be relating the time-images found in Mother and Son to the notion of fractals. The film was entered into feature film competition at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. The mother is old and sick, and they spend the rest of her life in what looks like the ruin of a nineteenth century country house. Before Empire Come: Mother and Son (Aleksandr Sokurov, 1997) The story of a mother slowly dying while in the care of her son, Mat i syn (Mother and Son, 1997) was lauded worldwide at the time of its release – first and foremost for its stunning visuals of idyllic countryside and misty forests, deeply informed, as most critics noted, by the paintings of Caspar David Friedrich. Aleksandr Sokurov's previous films have borne such titles as The Lonely Voice of Man, The Degraded and Sad Insensitivity, accompanied by documentary 'elegies' - In Father and Son, Alexander Sokurov unabashedly tiptoes over the thin line between an ethereal connection and incestuous love, and bestows onto the world cinema probably one of the most brilliantly homoerotic controversies of all time. by David Neo Volume 5, Issue 6 / November 2001 9 minutes (2243 words) Sokurov creates some stunningly beautiful archetypal images in Mother and Son. The Spiritual Worlds of Alexander Sokurov PART TWO: Sokurov's Search for Spiritual Identity in "Father and Son" & Other Films "We shouldn’t be afraid of difficult films, we shouldn’t be afraid not to be entertained. In other words, Rancière debunked the proverbial “anxiety of influence” in Sokurov, or his Oedipal rejection of the Soviet and/or modernist father, and the reactionary stance lurking behind Sokurov’s death-ridden characterisations and overly aestheticised and de-populated realms. But was it only in order to come closer to the contemplative, absorbing regime of the religious icon as mediated here through the secular mystery of the romantic sublime that Sokurov had decided to remove, inasmuch as is possible, the feeling of passing of time from his film? More importantly, Rancière showed the contradictions of the professed bi-dimensionality in Sokurov’s corpus, by highlighting elements of depth and time in his films. He imputed this injustice to the cultural and spiritual vacuum of the day, proposing a film that would do away with the 20th century, and inviting its viewer to another approach of cinema, of time, and existence. But Alexander Sokurov's Russian Ark has every right to the claim. Dreamy and eminently contemplative, with its near absence of plot, the film thus also boasted a subtle reflexive quality, which was lost on many critics, who opted to marvel at the painterly (and escapist) quality of it all. This allowed Sokurov to layer and give additional depth to his mise en scène: the director would paint onto the surface of the mirror, adding surprising and unique effects to his already unusual, soft and gauzy representations. Sokurov was born in Podorvikha, Irkutsk Oblast, in Siberia, into a military officer's family. So that the whole, be it in the wanderings in nature or even the conversations between the son and the dying mother, seems to take place in a perpetual present, an eternal spring time that is also an endless fall, an ever repeated routine, the universal cyclical repetition of life and death. His next, Father and Son, is a classic Sokurov, a mythical, lyrical film that should be seen as the second part of the family trilogy that started with Mother and Son … 83m/C DVD .

If the lives of many (and nowhere more so than in Russia, as it were) had gone to waste, at least, the director thought, they could find some solace in the acceptance of death. Avoiding the kitsch such reproductions may have yielded, director Aleksandr Sokurov resorted to a variety of practical tricks: in some shots he used anamorphic, distorting lenses applied directly onto the camera; in other instances, the image was actually shot in the mirror reflection of miniature landscapes and ruins – accounting for the many fixed, static compositions in the film.

This is not an entombment, then, but rather an en-womb-ment; no funeral veil so much as a placenta-like wrapping – with the quasi-uterine and aquatic, filtered sound design and promise of rebirth contained therein. Of the former (the story of a hapless son incapable of tending to his dead father’s funeral arrangements), John Mackay aptly pointed out to the feeling of “surplus” of death.4 The film thus spoke to the very belated coming to terms, in Russia, with the horrors of Stalinism, kept under a lid until the collapse of the USSR.
