Dovlatov

Aleksej German / RU, PL, RS, 2018 / 126 min.

Aleksei German Jr. used magnificent scenes and long tracking shots to evoke the world of the Russian-Jewish author Sergei Dovlatov (1941-1990), who was unable to get his brilliant and ironic texts published in Brezhnev’s Soviet Union. The tragicomic portrait of rebellion and accommodation also highlights an era of destructive stagnation.
