This film is about old-ish woman who lived in the village all her life, she comes to visit her daughter and granddaughter in the city. Being "the old school" she can't come to terms with her daughter divorcing her husband and tries to fix their relationships to no avail. She struggles to make herself helpful and realises she is kind of a burden to them with all her advices, questions, misunderstandings... I really like watching this movie, it's a bit sad but funny at the same time, Nonna Mordyukova shows a very naive and kind character that can't find it difficult to accept changes. Some things she comes out with are brilliant! Great movie from Nikita Mikhalkov.
