Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Aleksey Uchitel. 2003, 90 mins. DCP. In Russian with English subtitles. With Irina Pegova, Pavel Barshak, Evgeniy Tsyganov, Evgeniy Grishkovets. Made with a youthful spirit to match that of its three energetic young leads, The Stroll is the film that best captures, in both content and form, a new century and a new regime’s sense of possibility, discovery and entitlement. Presented largely in real time, The Stroll takes place along St. Petersburg’s most famous promenade, Nevskii Prospekt, where the beautiful Olya is courted first by Alyosha and the by his friend Petya, their flirtations and gamesmanship intermingling with the sights and scenes they confront along the way. Alexei Uchitel’s breakout film is like a more fleet-footed, hybridized Before Sunrise, albeit with a decidedly less romantic denouement.
