Fascinating Slow Burn of a Movie
A fascinating slow burn that is as exhilarating as it is difficult at times to watch.
“Beanpole” is actually a good movie to be watching during the 2020 COVID pandemic, as it’s a reminder to a whole population of people who’ve never experienced any significant hardship how much worse things could be. Watch a movie about post WWII Russia and then ask yourself how big a deal it is that Trader Joe’s was out of your favorite brand of crackers again.
The towering actress Viktoria Miroshnichenko, as the film’s title character, and Vasilisa Perelygina, as her friend who’s recently returned from the front, give amazing performances navigating exceptionally difficult material. This is one of those movies that would be off putting if the direction and acting didn’t strike just the right tone. It’s one of those movies about which people say “I didn’t like any of the characters” as a way to dismiss the whole thing. But, like the best character studies, “Beanpole” doesn’t care whether or not you like anyone in it. It instead asks you to live with the characters for awhile and see if you can empathize with them, and understand their choices based on the circumstances in which they find themselves.
And, directing and acting aside, the film looks beautiful. For a film set in such a drab time and setting, it uses saturated colors, especially green and red, to tie images visually to the mental states of the characters.
The movie year still has a way to go, but I imagine this one will make my own personal shortlist of favorites.
