 Our Description


The Island (Ostrov) - DVD

Somewhere in Northern Russia in a small Russian Orthodox monastery lives a very unusual man, Father Anatoly. His fellow-monks are confused by his bizarre conduct. Those who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. However, he considers himself unworthy because of a sin he committed in his youth. The film is a parable, combining the realities of Russian everyday life with monastic ritual and routine. On the Arts and Faith Top 100 Films list!

In Russian with English subtitles. Winner of 5 Nika Awards (Russian Oscars®) including Best Film.

This film is rated: PG and is a Region 1 DVD (North America)

"A deeply moving exploration of sin, redemption, and faith."
Cinematical

"An unsentimental journey of guilt, atonement and redemption."
- The Times (UK)

"Penetrated by Russian Orthodox spirituality, Pavel Lungin's deceptively (or perhaps not so deceptively) simple film tells the story of a monastic who is reputed as a holy man and a wonder-worker, but masks his spiritual gifts with subterfuge and outrageous behavior."
- Steven Greydanus, Decentfilms.com

"Ostrov brings us deep into a zone of reality that was eclipsed in Russia for generations and even now is declining in the West. This story of a man's life in a remote Russian monastery during the Communist era offers a stunning plot and profound characterization. It is also a superb work of art on every level. It will shake you and console you. One of the truly great films of all time."
- Michael D. O'Brien, Author, Father Elijah
