Synopsis

The images comprise only the material Loznitsa found in the archives in Moscow about the siege of Leningrad during the World War II. By providing the originally silent images with a meticulously reconstructed and almost perfect soundtrack, the scenes from everyday life under siege seem to be set in the present. By not intervening in the montage but giving the scenes room to tell a story, the scenes transcend the specific history events and lead a new life. They do not evoke memories of the past, but become a breathtaking reanimation of reality.
