Elem Klimovs grief-stricken elegy Larisa examines the life of his late wife the film director Larisa Shepitko through a series of direct-address interviews and photomontages, set against a mournful visual-musical backdrop. Typically, Klimov films his subjects (which include himself and several of Shepitkos collaborators) within a stark, snow-covered forest, its tangled web of trees standing in as metaphorical representation of a perhaps inexpressible suffering, the result of Shepitkos premature death while filming her adaptation of Valentin Rasputins novella Farewell to Matyora. Interweaving home movie footage with sequences from Shepitkos work (Maya Bulgakovas pensive plane crash reminiscence from Wings takes on several new layers of resonance in this context), Larisas most powerful passage is its first: accompanied by the grandiose final music cue from Shepitkos You and I, Klimov dissolves between a series of personal photographs that encompass Larisas entire life, from birth to death. This brief symphony of sorrow anticipates the cathartic reverse-motion climax of Klimovs Come and See, though by placing the scene first within Larisas chronology, Klimov seems to be working against catharsis. The pain is clearly fresh, the wound still festering, and Klimov wants above all to capture how deep miserys knife has cut. by Keith Uhlich ___________________________________________________________  Larisa Elem Klimov Maya Bulgakova Valentin Rasputin Stefaniya Stanyuta Aleksandr Dovzhenko Larisa Shepitko DVD Rip Video Codec: XviD Video Bitrate: 1499 Kbps Audio Codec: AC3 Audio Bitrate: 192 Kbps CBR 48 KHz Width: 720 pixels Height: 544 pixels Aspect Ratio: 4/3 Frame Rate: 25.000 FPS File size: 241.9 MiB Duration: 20 mn Included english subtitles(srt).
