Vasily Ivanovich Surikov...
27 May 2019 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

An excellent biographical drama of the Siberian born Realist History Painter Vasiliy Surikov (1848-1916). This wonderful film gives a fascinating insight into the world of the Russian artist and the backgrounds to some of his most visually spectacular works. Featuring throughout in intimate detail is the artistic process, the origins of his most famous paintings. Following closely Surikov's real life & his great love, the story however never strays too far from the artist & his all consuming passion. Featuring two wonderful leads both debut performances, Evgeniy Lazarev, with a remarkable resemblance to a Surikov self portrait from 1879 and playing his lovely wife Larisa Kadochnikova,as Lilya.. An absorbing beautifully composed Highly Recommended Soviet classic "painter biopic" film...
