Like no film ever made, this boundary-breaking, dreamlike vision of the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg is the first feature-length narrative film shot in a single take. Russian Ark is shot from the point-of-view of an unseen narrator, as he explores the museum and travels through Russian history.
