This is one of the most
famous stories of Gogoll. I think that you can understand the movie
very well because of the music. It is a very exciting interaction: to congegrate the timing and emotion
that we put into the music with the images. The images you see and the faces
of the people are very strong. Look, this is beautiful. The images are absolutely stunning. This movie is unique,
together with this ensemble. You feel the magic,
the excitement of live music… …combined with the most beautiful,
expressionistic images. This movie isn’t well known,
but it is a masterpiece. The story alone is already a masterpiece. There are so many modern
elements in life these days. Most of it is a bit, well, cold. And then there is this old movie.
It is so cute! Very nice! It is raw, there are the primal instincts,
Russian, bitter coldness! People just brutally laugh at you,
humilliate you and throw you on the street! The images are absolutely stunning. They are so to say these beautiful
old photos with expressive glazes. The music you here is… …and if we perform that live on stage it
adds another emotional dimension.
