Critic Reviews for Sibiriada (Siberiade)
Audience Reviews for Sibiriada (Siberiade)
"Siberiade" is an admirable celebration of a land and its people told in roughly ten year increments that each begin with a character arriving from the outside world and end with a character departing from parts unknown from an isolated village. As the village stays pretty much the same over the decades, as symbolized by the Eternal Old Man, the outside world is constantly changing. The story begins with a bang in the 1960's before flashing back to the 1910's as Anafasy is futilely trying to build a road to nowhere that occasionally interferes with his drinking. That leaves his son Kolya alone with an escaped revolutionary, Rodin, who is eventually recaptured by soldiers but not before he helps the boy build an ice boat and inspires his politically. Ten years later, Kolya has grown into a young man, helping his father and learns that the Czar has been forced out. This is not really big news since the new boss is the same as the old boss.
