Russian film director Alexander Sokurov's movie Father and Son was released in Great Britain on Friday, August 20
Father and Son is the second part of Sokurov's trilogy about family relations. The first film, Mother and Son, was shot in 1996. Alexander Sokurov's Russian Ark was presented in the United Kingdom 1.5 years ago. This movie was approved by critics and the audience. Father and Son is one of the three Russian movies included in the London film festival in 2003. Moreover, it was shown at the last year's festival in Cannes and won a FIPRESCI award [FIPRESCI is the International Federation of the Cinematographic Press]. Many Russian films were shown in Great Britain this summer. In early July London hosted retro shows of the best Soviet and Russian films organized by the British Modern Art Institute and the Russian Mosfilm studios. It opened with Andrei Tarkovsky's film Andrei Rublev. Moreover, other Soviet and Russian masterpieces were shown, including Mikhail Kalatozov's The Cranes Are Flying, Grigory Chukhrai's Ballade of a Soldier, Karen Shakhnazarov's The Day of the Full Moon, Elem Klimov's Come and See, Nikita Mikhalkov's Unfinished Piece for Mechanical Piano and Nikolai Lebedev's Star. Moreover, since mid-August Andrei Tarkovsky's Mirror has been shown in the institute four times a day. According to organizers, the British audience is highly interested both in Soviet classical films and new Russian movies. Since June 26 London's National gallery has hosted retro shows of the best Soviet and Russian films, as well. The event is entitled Mother Russia. It will close with Andrei Zvyagintsev The Return, which won two Golden Lions in Venice in 2003 for Best Debut and Best Film. We are much content with The Return's success in Great Britain, said Michael Wales involved in the film's distribution in the United Kingdom. We hope to collect 300,000 pounds, he noted. The audience and critics see The Return as a Russian film about Russia, he added.
