Storyline

"Stars never leave their orbits". The poor astronomy teacher got one more demonstration of this law when he met HER. SHE was "from the another world". SHE was strange and inappropriate in his tiny calm town. Town with slough-like life and citizens who spent all their time gossiping. Once he almost started to believe that the miracle is possible... but "the stars never leave their orbits". Written by Eugene Lilitko <gene@ks.botik.ru>

we always kill the one we love
31 July 2003 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

This is what you see through the eyes of a Russian komsomol (young communist organization) member of the 80ies. The Bitch of a rich guy is put off the train in the middle of nowhere, cos she wanted to pay for her ticket with the tokens of some casino. It´s a village, they don´t have a hotel. She needs place to sleep over a night. Young astronomer invites her to sleep over. He tells her about stars. She falls in love with him. In other words I gave a 10 and I have to admit that I cry every time I see it and don´t ask me why do I do that, and seeing it makes me feel good, and the astronomer bloke discovered a new star and named it after her. Here you have it.
