HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER

Directed by Alexei Popogrebsky
Directed by Alexei Popogrebsky


"Gripping!...a suspenseful man-braving-the-elements adventure movie!"
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"One of the best films to come from Russia in recent years—Don't miss it!"
- Miranda Siegel, New York Magazine
PARADISE

PARADISE

Directed by Andrei Konchalovsky


"Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama."
- Guy Lodge, Variety

"... persuasively acted, elegantly shot in black and white and altogether a handsome prestige period production..."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International

"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography. "
- Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
ROADS TO KOKTEBEL

ROADS TO KOKTEBEL

Directed by Alexei Popogrebsky, Boris Khlebnikov


"In less talented hands, the plot could have turned into just another road movie. Instead, [Popogrebsky and Khlebnikov's] taut script, skill with performers and loving eye for natural beauty create a film that recalls vintage Terrence Malick."
- Leslie Felperin, Variety
