Full Text

The article is devoted to the sound in a film for the purposes of understanding a director's aesthetics in auteur cinema. The questions - What does a sound create in a film? How does it do it? - become the problem of understanding why the sound is used in a film in a certain way. The issue is discussed through the example of Alexander Sokurov's film “The Lonely Voice of Man.” The author attempts to appraise the significance of sound effects, voice and music as an essential component of screen embodiment of director's existential reflection.
