Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1993
“A travelogue through history... Akerman has described this elegant masterpiece as ‘documentary bordering on fiction’; it’s also a purely cinematic monument in time and space.”
—J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

In this haunting, nearly wordless record of Eastern Europe after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Akerman captures indelible images of people and places seemingly stuck in time: grand railway stations, stony-faced people lined up amid austere communist architecture, the otherworldly, snowbound landscapes of Moscow in winter’s twilight. The director’s eye for detail and painterly compositions yields something unique: a resonantly emotional travelogue. An Icarus Films release.
