Opis:

ZVENIGORA is less a film than a tone poem, set forth by master Russian cinematic poet Alexander Dovzhenko. Moving outside the studio system for the first time (it was his fourth film), Dovzhenko uses lyrical location shots of rural Ukraine and its farmers to excellent advantage. The very complex storyline combines elements of fact and folklore in relating the history of the Ukraine, using the search for a fabled treasure as the glue that holds the tale together. This is not an accessible 'classroom classic' like Sergei Eisenstein's BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN. Be prepared to think and be challenged, and not to sit back comfortably, while experiencing ZVENIGORA.

Regarded as a silent revolutionary epic, Dovzhenko's initial film in his War Trilogy, (along with Arsenal and Earth) is almost religious in its tone and is one of the most remarkable avant-garde films of an exuberantly experimental period. The film wonderfully blends both lyricism and politics and uses its central construct to build a montage praising Ukrainian industrialisation, attacking the European bourgeoisie, celebrating the beauty of the Ukrainian steppe and re-telling ancient folklore. A grandfather fills the head of his grandson with stories of a legendary Scythian treasure and the boy spends the rest of his life trying to find it. The unique style is modernist in its approach and disregards the more traditional storytelling devices. The captivating dreamlike cinematography is reminiscent of Eisenstein, Pudovkin, Protazanov and Kuleshov, yet Zvenigora is wholley unique to Dovzhenko.
