A very good film
This is a very good film. It works on several levels. I don’t know whether this was intended by it’s authors or no, but the general outline of the film has obvious Alice in the Wonderland (or Through the Looking-Glass) allusion. The confectioner woman imagines (or dreams about) a story of revenge and justice (a real cruel fairy tale adventure full of evil and good characters, colorful and strange images) and as in `Alice’ right when the story gets kind of `out of control’ (grandson kills himself with grandfathers riffle, son digs out the corpse of his father.) we get back to the cosy room of confectioner, from where our adventures to the past and future have begun.

It was really interesting to see the story of Totalitarian regime through this `fairy tale’ angle. They make a lot of films that are meant to be much more historically precise than `Repentance’, but most of them are flat and look more like TV dramatizations of some definite actual events than the works of art. And `Repentance’ is an art-film in a very good sense of this word.

The closing sequence of Old Woman walking up the street (looking for the Temple – justice, freedom, happiness?) accompanied by heavenly classic music is one of the most beautiful film episodes I’ve ever seen.

Review By: bbcd64
ponderous Iron Curtain parable
It’s almost impossible to appreciate the extraordinary conditions which inspired this Soviet political allegory, and which (after four years in limbo) allowed it to finally be released. But is it worth the necessary mental arithmetic required to understand it as a native Russian might? Certainly the film is a worthwhile barometer of (then) current Soviet attitudes, but most of the dramatic potential in the scenario is wasted on transparent symbolism and too many ponderous soliloquies into the nature of sin and guilt. It wants to be a satire of Josef Stalin’s bloody dictatorship, but the story is little more than a simple political fantasy, set in a nameless city where the corpse of the recently deceased mayor keeps reappearing in public, prompting several flashbacks to the tyranny and oppression of his life in power. The daring comparison of Stalin to Hitler must have been heady stuff for sheltered Soviet filmgoers, just then coming to grips with glasnost, but for the rest of us the most memorable aspect of the film might be its striking poster art.
