by Alexander Sokurov, 2011

I’ve only seen this great film by way of a Russian dvd video recording (as it didn’t get a very extensive release in the United States,) in which the German dialogue, with a slight delay, was loudly spoken in Russian translation over top of the  quieter German.  It created an unintentional yet effective alienation effect that was not completely unpleasant.  Luckily I knew the story that Sokurov was telling very well and the images were every bit as ravishing as one might expect from this master.
