Fortsetzung der Erforschung der männlichen Lebenskrise, die Ferrara mit TOMMASO begann: Alter Ego Clint unterhält in einem tief verschneiten Tal eine Art Taverne. Draußen bellen die Schlittenhunde, drinnen lässt sich ein Inuit Schnaps einschenken – und schon hebt der Film ab und springt ohne Netz ins Reich der seelenerforschenden Fantasmagorie. Clint nämlich, konfrontiert mit der Frage nach dem Sinn, bricht auf zu einer Reise, die von Beginn an auch eine metaphorische ist, und im Zuge derer er unterschiedlichen Möglichkeiten der Erlösung begegnet. Eher Vorschlag denn festgefügtes Werk reizt SIBERIA mit der Freiheit seiner Form und dem Mut seiner Gedanken. (Alexandra Seitz)

In Anwesenheit von Abel Ferrara.

Abel Ferrara’s career in cinema has been defined by a continual flouting of the rules – of narrative, of representation, and sometimes of good taste. (Nicole Brenez famously compared him to Joe Strummer of The Clash, “a poet who justifies the existence of popular forms.”) But even accounting for this artist’s unstoppable iconoclasm, nothing he has done could have prepared us for Siberia, his latest, and arguably greatest, collaboration with Willem Dafoe. It begins as a glacially-paced East-meets-Western, with Dafoe as Clint, the proprietor of a lonely watering hole in the middle of the frozen wasteland, receiving the occasional visitor on dogsled. But before long, this locale falls away, leading our putative hero to embark upon a complex journey of the mind and spirit, one that will take him across time and space, past and present, possibly even Heaven and Hell. Siberia is Ferrara at his most metaphysical, and while the film suggests influences as a diverse as Bergman, Tarkovsky, and Matthew Barney, it is Dafoe’s mesmerizing performance that holds the film together. His Clint is the Western male subject of rationality, who experiences himself “under erasure.” (Michael Sicinski)
