At the start of this silent Soviet feature, Russian sergeant Filimonov (Fedor Nikitin) is a proud soldier under the imperialistic czar. However, after his darling wife (Lyudmila Semenova) goes missing, he sets out to find her. In doing so, he begins a journey that exposes him to a new world of political ideas.

  • [Fragment of an Empire has] clever direction and photography, coupled with a story that exceeds in entertainment value most from Russia.

  • In certain respects this film is a trifle sketchy, but it is nevertheless impressive and imaginative.

    May 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Fragment of an Empire shows that the cinema artists of the Soviet Union are never satisfied with just one technique, with one theme or a single triumph. They keep on experimenting, creating, discovering.

    May 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • As bold and uncompromising as its director, and its central performance by Nikitin is a truly exceptional work, some of the best acting of the silent era.

    September 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • By delving into Filiminov's fractured, conflicted mind and heart (intertitles often represent the tortured hero's inner monologue), Ermler makes his film's ultimate conclusions more persuasive on an emotional and psychological level.
