  • In praise of art, but also a reminder that we need to treasure what we have.

    November 11, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • By turns baffling, disturbing, moving and provocative, Alexander Sokurov's dreamy documentary stimulates the heart and head, just as it tests the limits of descriptive analysis.

  • In the end, the film suffers from cultural overload.

    October 6, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • "Francofonia" is terribly over-directed and seems strange just for the sake of being strange.

  • This is disjointed and dreary, its power diluted by Sokurov's constant, self-important narration.
