  • Father Sergius

    1918. Russia. Directed by Yakov Protazanov, Alexandre Volkoff. With Ivan Mosjoukine, Olga Kondorova, Vladimir Gajdarov, Nathalie Lissenko. Based on Leo Tolstoy’s eponymous novella, this film marks a high point in Protozanov (who later returned to Moscow) and Mosjoukine’s collaboration. Mosjoukine’s tour-de-force performance (he was a frequent interpreter of Tolstoy) traces the hero’s torturous path from young cadet in the Imperial Army to itinerant religious sage. Two years later, most of the cast and crew of Father Sergius would comprise the core of what would become Films Albatros. 85 min.
