Does Chagall-Malevich have end credit scenes?
Chagall-Malevich does not have end credit scenes.
Inspired by the memoirs of Marc Chagall (Leonid Bichevin) and those of his contemporaries, the film blends fact and folklore to evoke the return of the iconic Jewish artist to his childhood home of Vitebsk. Having left behind immense success in Paris, Chagall returns to the Russian empire in 1917 in hope to marry the love of his life Bella Rosenfeld (Kristina Schneidermann). He produces copious paintings and establishes the Academy of Modern Art. A rivalry develops with abstract painter Kazimir Malevich (Anatoliy Belyy), invited to teach at the art school. As Bella rekindles a childhood friendship with military Red Commissar Naum (Semeon Shkalikov), Chagall competes for the affections of his muse and future wife. As the October Revolution sweeps across Russia, historical events intrude on personal struggles and upend the quiet provincial life in Vitebsk.
