The Train Stop


Speedy passing trains are tearing the silence of a small railway station. Despite the noise, the people waiting there are still sound asleep. Is there anything that could possibly wake them up? Sergei Loznitsa displays formalistic brilliance while depicting a slice of reality, as he employs the use of sound to illustrate the transition of Russian society from Communism towards a still unknown destination - at the end of the road, his heroes might finally wake up.
