Karlovy Vary Preview: Nariman Turebayev’s ‘Adventure’ (‘Priklyuchenie’)

June 28th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Nariman Turebayev has had reasonable exposure on the festival circuit from his first two features, ‘Malenkie lyudi’ and ‘Sunny Days’, including two Locarno Golden Leopard nominations, but only limited theatrical distribution.  It’s difficult to see that pattern changing with his follow up, an idiosyncratic musical adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s early short story, ‘White Nights’.  The tale of a nondescript man’s unrequited love for a young woman missing a former lover has already attracted, amongst many others, Luchino Visconti, Robert Bresson and James Gray.
