La Délivrance de Tolstoï

Frédéric Mitterrand, 2003, France, 91’, OVS. English

In 1910 Lev Tolstoy went through a profound moral crisis. His anxiety about making his life coincide with his ascetic ideals had worsened due to his wife Sophia's lack of understanding. The documentary is based on archive material that illustrates the writer's last years of life.
