A bold adaptation of Anton Chekhov's legendary short story, and Russia's official entry for the Academy Awards, Ward No. 6 is an "absorbing" (Time Out NY) descent into madness.
It tells the story of Dr. Ragin (Cladmire Ilyin), and how he ended up as a patient in the insane asylum he once led. Feeling isolated in town, Ragin holds long philosophical dialogues with his brilliant patient Gromov (Alexey Vertkov), which lead him to question the nature of his own existence. Updating the 1892 tale to the present day, director Karen Shakhnazarov shot the film in a real mental institution on the outskirts of Moscow, and conducted interviews with actual patients, "a sort of Blair Witch - like collage of interviews, recollections and creepy conversations that scrape at the far edge of metaphysical uncertainty." (Time Out NY)
Ward No. 6 was a passion project for Shakhnazarov, who originally wrote the script in 1988 with Marcello Mastroianni set to star. But Ilyin and Vertkov are incandescent in his place, and the "modern touches don't obscure Chekhov's profound compassions for the human condition" (NY Times). A powerful film, Ward No. 6 illuminates the writer's immortal genius for a new generation.
