The film

Synopsis

Somewhere in Nothern Russia in a small Russian Orthodox monastery lives a very unusual man. His fellow monks are confused by his bizarre conduct. Those who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. However, he considers himself unworthy because of a sin he committed in his youth. Pavel Lungin film is a parable, combining the realities of Russian everyday life with monastic ritual and routine. Aside from its absorbing atmosphere and stunning visuals, it features a compelling central performance by Pyotr Mamonov.
