A Film about Anna Akhmatova


"A Film about Anna Akhmatova": One of the biggest poets in Russian history, Anna Akhmatova received early recognition from the literary world as well as the worship of men and the friendship and admiration of a brilliant generation of intellectuals. The conflicts of her time would later destroy everything she had: her first husband was executed by the Soviet regime; her last one died of exhaustion in a gulag; her son was arrested and deported to Siberia. Apart from loneliness, a topic that can be seen early in her work, she also addressed terror, deprivation, and her own “civilian death”, promoted by Stalinism. However, as Landauer goes through an abundant archive of old and current footage with the guide of poet Anatoly Litman, she doesn’t build a bitter or painful biopic of such a hard life: recreating the story in the form of a Greek tragedy, A Film… finds in the luminous poetry of its heroine enough motives to sing a passionate and victorious ending.
