The Miracle of Subjective \ Amir Pourya Review of “Dovlatov ”

The great and exciting events in the cinematic narration are always the same, without the intention of the filmmaker to have a “different narration”. It seems that the structure of the narration and what narrates are related to each other. Sergey Dolatov wandered parties and cafes and news offices in Leningrad in the early 1970s, and this “wandering” turns into the narrative structure of the film. This situation is not pleasant: poets and writers are ineffectively tried to publish their works but they quit their job. A poet works in the mine and the other is a technical employee of a studio. So we see that this wandering is the sign of their mental wandering. The second person that we talk about him is Joseph Brodsky, Nobel Laureate of Literature in 1987. Meanwhile, the movie, along with that fluid quality, narrates the story of real people. Therefore, one must remain loyal to all that one needs to reconstruct the historical period. The “Doltovff” visual style is a combination of these two features: the creation of a tangible image of a passing moment of the camera fluid between dreams and reality.
