    ★★★

    Def an interesting historical artifact here. As you can tell from the plot synopsis, this is about a Russian dissident who gets deported to Siberia for ten years until the February Revolution, where he gets to return to civilization and is reunited with his now grown-up son.

    ★★★★½

    Watching this over 40 years later it remains an artifact of its time, yet it feels so uncannily dizzying and forward-thinking that it feels like the prequel to the 2010s. In the early 70s, we can see glimpses of what was to come in the following decades, with this film showing us examples of polyamory and same-sex marriage - in at the very least, a neutral and non-judgemental way, while the film focuses on the unpredictable technological and social change…
