Malmkrog

Rating: PG13 (Some Violence 些许暴力画面)

Synopsis

In an ostentatious manor in 19th-century Transylvania, six aristocrats spar with one another about the nature of good and evil, war, mortality and religion. Their serious pontifications are backgrounded by the constant presence of expressionless servants working in perfectly choreographed movements. Contradictions abound and no resolution is ever reached.

Based on Russian philosopher Vladimir Solovyov’s influential text, War and Christianity: Three Conversations, Malmkrog illustrates the violence of dogmatism cloaked in intellect, yet the incessant discursive turns also call into question the existence of absolutes—including death. The film won Best Director in the Encounters section at the Berlin International Film Festival.
