Leningrad, the late 1940's: A woman (Jeanne Moreau) returns from a Stalinist prison camp and now passes through a Russia of poverty and decay with no place of her own to go, just like a visitor (and thus always carrying a suitcase). During her journey, she starts a sexual relationship with a young musician and Bohèmian, kills a rich man for his money, and gets involved in acts of terrorism, but ultimately she has to realize the Russia she has returned to is not the one she has left ...

 

To try to sum up this movie in words and try to capture its essence by a sober synopsis does not do this movie justice, as it is less a narrative piece of film but a metaphoric and bizarre, even surreal journey through 1940's Russia and beyond that makes its point through impressive images rather than a coherent story (and as a result, the film's plot is episodic at best). Keeping all this in mind though, the film is less than perfect, despite all of its visual brilliance it somehow outstays its welcome at over 2 hours of running time, and its episodic structure sure doesn't help to keep one interested, nor does the rather deliberate ending really satisfy. But even though Anna Karamazoff isn't the masterpiece it could have been, it's still at least worth a look.
