Storyline

A man goes to see his former schoolmate working at a boiler house and persuades him to burn in the furnace the corpse of his communal flat neighbor whom he has just murdered after a quarrel. An orphaned girl gets a job in the archives of the maternity home to find out the identity of her mother who abandoned her years earlier. She finds her, befriends her and takes the first opportunity to throw her into the sea. An old intellectual tries to explain to the neighbor's five-year-old daughter "all the abomination of her lumpen existence". The girl feeling hurt for her mother decides to poison the old man with arsenic. Written by NTV-PROFIT <ntvprofit@glasnet.ru>

Definitely worth to see
14 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Kira Muratova is one of my favorite directors. She combines in her movies such an unusual and interesting blend of feminine subtlety and masculine hardness and power. This movie is a perfect evidence of it. The movie consists of three unrelated stories, which, as I see it, reflect the director's view on dark sides of various demographic parts of contemporary society. The first story is by far the best on my opinion. Though this part of the movie can be easily regarded as misandric, I especially love it for absolutely excellent and sparkling playing of actors.

Definitely recommend all to see this movie.
