Storyline

At a dusty crossroads in the Soviet Union villagers surrender their possessions - a horse, a samovar, a goat - to the state. The train which takes them away brings to the village a physically and mentally handicapped woman, barely able to speak. She makes herself bracelets of burrs and studies herself in a cracked and cloudy mirror. Befriended by very few, teased and tormented by many she seeks protection at a huge portrait of Stalin.

Painful view of village life in the Soviet Union
8 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At a dusty crossroads in the Soviet Union villagers surrender their possessions - a horse, a samovar, a goat - to the state. The train which takes them away brings to the village a physically and mentally handicapped woman, barely able to speak. She makes herself bracelets of burrs and studies herself in a cracked and cloudy mirror. Befriended by very few, teased and tormented by many she seeks protection at a huge portrait of Stalin. The children taunt her as Stalin's girlfriend. Far from Moscow, minor state functionaries fear scandal from poor Paranya who crosses herself in front of the portrait. The all powerful state which provides every family a cabbage one day, a melon the next, which gives a citizen the job of guarding waste is threatened by a flaxen-haired, childlike woman whose only clothing is a burlap sack. The English subtitles are sparse and rudimentary with some errors.
