Konchalovsky's Russian drama to screen at Chief Theater

Bud Werner Memorial Library's free foreign film series continues with Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky's film, "Paradise," screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18 at the Chief Theater. Olga is a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed.

Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search of paradise — a look at the past and its lessons for the present. The film screens in Russian with English subtitles. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
