An Ordinary Execution
Based on his own hugely successful novel of the same name, Marc Dugain's debut feature, An Ordinary Execution, is an encounter between the ageing Joseph Stalin (Andre Dussollier) and a young doctor. Anna (Marina Hands) has extraordinary healing powers, brought in to treat the escalating physical woes of the dictators old age after his own doctor has been "purged." Seen entirely through Anna's eyes, he lays bare his philosophy of terror - rambling, plotting, intimidating.
