Russian film about St. Alexis of Moscow ("The Horde")
« on: October 22, 2012, 04:00:29 PM »
A new film was released last month, called Orda ("The Horde"), which is about a particular episode from the life of St. Alexis of Moscow when he was summoned to cure the Khan's wife of blindness.  You can see the trailer for it here.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

The first question at the press conference after the film set an energetic and intense tone to the conversation. The question was asked as to whether or not the Director believed that Moscow Orthodoxy was the only true faith with true spiritual powers.

I gotta be honest, I found it extremely interesting that the press is even pushing an agenda at these events, trying to call out the MP & their "agenda" behind the "agenda".  I liked the producer's response though. 
I got nothing.
