Belovy 1992
"Belovy" (Belovs) is a breathtaking portrait of a troubled peasant family. It's poetry in the form of a documentary that won many prizes. Beautifully shot in vintage black and white, the film tells the story of two times widow Anna Belova who lives together with her brother Mikhail. Blending the two personalities, Kosakovsky characterizes the true Russian soul: she is the rational worker, honest and strong - he is the drunken poet, the idealist, his philosophy fades into radical nonsense time after time. Sometimes two other brothers, Vasily and Sergei come to visit them. At those occasions, they wonder if there is a measure for misery, they quarrel, take a steam-bath and go skinny-dipping in a nearby river. The film displays the grief and joy of Anna who lives with her stoic brother and two kids who don't seem to make any progress. Magnificent-typically Russian-photography reminds one of Tarkovsky.
