The film

Synopsis

Inspired by Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, Alexander Sokurov’s Save and Protect recalls the most crucial events of Emma’s decline and fall, including affairs with an aristocratic and a student. Focusing on passion from a woman’s perspective and downplaying plot, Sokurov explores his subject in exquisite detail, capturing not only the heat of passion but also the quiet moments before and after and the innocent sensuousness of the body.
