Price: €14.00


Boris Pasternak’s name is most of the time asso­ci­ated with Dr Zhivago’s one. This writer sud­denly knew a world­wide fame after he was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1957. When he died three years after that he was almost unknown. Who was Boris Paster­nak ? The film – which fol­lows his writ­ings like a com­pass, to take us through the cen­tu­ry­makes us dis­cover the work of this great Russ­ian poet and nov­el­ist. The film­maker has shot pic­tures of eter­nal Rus­sia ; its rugged men and snowy land­scapes. He filmed the places where Paster­nak had lived. He met his son Euge­nia who showed him his per­sonal archives and thou­sands of pic­tures. The music of Tchaikovsky and Scri­abin, which the young Paster­nak had a real pas­sion for, echoes with his poems and his prose and con­tributes to the mak­ing of a lively por­trait of this excep­tional man.
