  • Review

    Aleksey German´s My Friend Ivan Lapshin is a film based on a novel his father Yuri German wrote, which he worked with his wife Svetlana Karmalita. The film was completed in 1982, but released after several censorships in 1984. The film intended to give a retrospective look back on the 1930s. German adhered with the scattered narrative where there is no classification between the important and the unimportant. A police officer, played by Andrei Boltnev is the focal figure, but it is hard to judge what is important amongst the flurry of events. The story is filled with coincidental details, characters, and meticulous reconstruction of past dialogue. German´s strength to create a multi-layered meaning based on self-consciousness of history unfolds. A winner of the Ernest Artaria Award at the Locarno International Film Festival. [JANG Byungwon]

Born in 1938. Having worked with Lenfilm, the oldest studio in the Soviet Union, he made his first film with Grigori Aronov, The Seventh Companion(1968) and finished Trial on the Road(1971), inspired by a novel written by his father. The film, set during World War II, was immediately forbidden with the excuse that it distorted historical facts: it was not released until 1985.With the advent of the 1990s and the new political situation, German worked on Khrustalyov, My Car!(1998) and it is released after being presented in competition at the Cannes.In 2000, he began to work on Hard to be a God which completed by Svetlana Karmalita and by their son Aleksey German Jr. after he passed away in 2013.
