Taliesin Cinema - WOW: The Gulls
Dir: Ella Manzheeva
Russia-Kalmykia 2015 1hr 27mins with subtitles
Evgeniya Mandzhieva, Sergey Adianov, Evgeny Sangadzhiev
Set against the background of modern Kalmykia (the only country in Europe where Buddhism is the national religion), in a small town squeezed between the sparse steppes the shores of the freezing Caspian Sea; is the haunting story of Elza, a fragile, fisherman’s wife who yearns to escape the harsh life and a brutal husband. With her keen eye and sure control of her material, Ella Manzheeva creates a mesmerising blend of minimalist realism and tense noir-ish drama reminiscent of the Dardennes Brothers.
