Inspired by the memoirs of Marc Chagall and his contemporaries, this film by Alexander Mitta blends fact and folklore to evoke the return in 1917 of the iconic Jewish artist to his childhood home of Vitebsk, where he falls in love with Bella Rosenfeld. As the October Revolution sweeps across Russia, historical events intrude on personal struggles and upend the provincial life in Vitebsk.
Russia, 2014, 119 mins., directed by Aleksandr Mitta, Russian with English subtitles.
