Product Details

A revelation from one of the world's great filmmakers. Amos Gitai turns his iconoclastic gaze to the collapse of the Soviet Union in a magnificent, wry, and oddly humorous film that stretches across the vast Russian plain. Daniel is an art dealer with bases in New York, Tel Aviv, and Paris. He inherits a collection in Birobidzhan, the autonomous Soviet Jewish Republic in the far reaches of Siberia. Daniel embarks on a trip to find the collection, including a gigantic statue of a Golem, by whatever means necessary. As he travels, he glimpses the painful aftermath of the Soviet Union's collapse. This brilliant epic stars Jerome Koenig, with supporting roles by B-movie legend Sam Fuller (Shock Corridor, The Naked Kiss) and Fassbinder's muse Hanna Schygulla (The Marriage of Maria Braun).
