Quick Movie Review – Russia Ark

Russian Ark

The Stranger: I was wrong, by the way… when I criticized your Tsars… for all this beauty and opulence. Even if they all were… tyrants.

As a narrative film or a brief history lesson on the Russian Empire, the film is far too vague and ephemeral to be effective or even especially interesting.  What really makes this work stand out though, is the incredible technical achievements it managed, and the gorgeous artwork, costumes and architecture it showcases.
