Planet Hermitage

“Hermitage – what could be added to this word? We haven’t got anything of greater importance. It is an ark, on which one can be saved if things get really bad. If there were no Hermitage, everything would lose meaning. “

Alexander Sokurov, director of the semi-fictional film, Russian Ark, shot in the Hermitage.
