Film director Andrei Khrzhanovsky has returned to Russia from Karlovy Vary with the “Crystal Globe” award. His film-fantasy “Poltory Komnaty, ili Sentimentalnoye Puteshestviye na Rodinu” (“One and a Half Room…”) about the life and work of poet Joseph Brodsky was awarded the main prize of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in a parallel contest , “East of the West”.
For film critics Khrzhanovsky’s award at the Karlovy Vary film festival was no surprise at all. His work was favourably received at the Rotterdam film forum in December last year, as the press reports said. This time the film goers also showed great interest in his film.
