With Much Love and Kisses (2006) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary With Much Love and Kisses.
Northern Russia. The Solovetskii Islands in the White Sea. An ancient monastery, turned into a concentration camp. Here, in the 1930s, famous philosophers, scholars, engineers and writers spent the last days of their lives. And 70 years later their children and grandchildren come here in order to see for the first time the stones, the monastery walls and northern landscapes, which their parents also saw. At the end of October and beginning of November 1937 more than 1000 prisoners were taken from the Solovetskii islands to the mainland and executed. But their letters were preserved by a miracle. And thanks to these letters, life is seen to be unconquered by death. Thanks to them, a woman who was once a small girl can now hear the voice of her father, who still thinks of and cares for her. This film is also about love. For it is love that unites the heroes of the 1930s, who perished but preserved their dignity, and their close, "loved and dear" ones, who only now, 70 years after the executions, have the opportunity to arrive for a meeting with their mothers, fathers and grandparents.
