Dovlatov by Alexey German Jr

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

For the first time in its relatively short existence (after it began operations in 2012), and after having previously boasted several titles in the parallel sections of the major international festivals, Paris-based international sales agent Alpha Violet now has a feature film selected in competition at one of the “Big Three” (Cannes, Berlin, Venice) on its line-up.

 by Alexey German Jr, which will be battling it out for the Golden Bear at the 68th Berlin Film Festival (15-25 February 2018), and for which Virginie Devesa and Keiko Funato’s team fully intends to close some great deals at the European Film Market.

Dovlatov, his fifth feature, was produced by Russia’s SAGa films, Metrafilms and First Channel, co-produced by Poland’s Message film and Serbia’s Art & Popcorn, and backed by Eurimages. Starring Serbian actor Milan Maric, Poland’s Helena Sujecka, and Russia’s Danila KozlovskyArtur Beschastny and Anton Shagin, the film (the very first images of which were shown in Work in Progress at the Les Arcs European Film Festival) charts six days in the life of a brilliant, ironic writer who saw far beyond the rigid limits of 1970s Soviet Russia. Sergei Dovlatov fought to preserve his own talent and decency with poet and writer Joseph Brodsky while watching his Soviet artist friends get crushed by the iron-willed state machinery. Interestingly, the cinematography has been entrusted to Poland’s Lukasz Zal (Oscar-nominated in 2015 for Ida [+leggi anche:
