I took the movie very seriously. Of course it is a black farce. But not only so.
I love to watch this movie. The director captured my attention and held it. The acting is extremely well-done down to the smallest gesture. The dialogue is meaningful; the silences even more so. Tatyana Drybich found her role here.
To me the movie uses this medium of dark farce to make some uncomfortable points about the course of Russia. That is obvious. But also it talks about what is meaningful to anyone. I think the dentist has an important role in the film, and his character is particularly well-done. Bravo!!! Very moving, poignant.
