Plot synopsis
“Film The Lonely Voice of Man is the first full–length feature film of Alexander Sokurov, made in 1978 and remastered in 1987 at the studio Lenfilm with the assistance of the Union of Filmmakers.

The story is based on the themes of Andrey Platonov's works River Potudan' and The Origin of a Master. The story of the painful rebirth of young Nikita who bears in his heart all the pain of the civil war, his truly human love for Lyuba, the difficult path of two young, deeply moral and very lonely people to each other… Far from being a screen version in traditional sense of the word, the film restores the spiritual nature of Platonov's prose”.

Tatiana Smorodinskaya (from the annotation of film editor)
