Description

Somewhere in Northern Russia in a small Russian Orthodox monastery lives a very unusual man. 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. "Pavel Lounguine surprises followers with his less-virile but oddly fascinating The Island . this parable about faith and salvation is addressed to the same kind of broad- minded arthouse audience drawn to spiritual themes."-Deborah Young, Variety
