This review is from: Alexandra  [DVD] (DVD)
"Alexandra" is a simple and unremarkable film about an old lady who goes to visit her grandson in a Russian army camp in Chechnya. After her reunion with her grandson, she wanders around the camp chatting to soldiers and does a spot of shopping in a local market. Nothing much else really happens. The old lady is likeable and vulnerable and she is played quite poignantly by the Russian actress. Left on her own in the twilight of her years and with her health failing, she has to come to terms with her loneliness and mortality in an unlikely place. "Alexandra" is a typically contemplative and gloomy Russian film.
