A deep spiritual love develops between a dying woman (Gudrun Geyer) and the son (Aleksei Ananishnov) who's caring for her in this gem from director Alexander Sokurov. When the two share the same dream one night, the son carries his mother outside to ease her pain and experience nature. Sokurov shoots through mirrors and panes of hand-painted glass to suggest the heightened, dreamlike reality experienced by mother and son.
