Dusha is a young dancer and dance instructor. Torn between a dominant mother, an absent father and a married lover, she is sinking into a typical crisis of the thirties, which gets worse when she starts suspecting that someone has been following her and invading her privacy.
I loved this movie! I stumbled upon it on television one night completely by accident and got thoroughly sucked-in. The characters are delightful and interesting and real (and the acting of them completely believable and charming). But more than anything else, perhaps the best thing I can say about this film is that it stuck with me. I particularly love the father of the stalker and his search for the green-legged moorhen. The film is full of beautiful, subtle humour. The kind of comedy of everyday life, simple events that we can all relate to, humour that endears us to the characters (for example the scene in which she tries to rip up her birthday card, or even the manic zig zagging of the stalker's camera trying to catch a look at the elusive bird... "Did you see it? No. Neither did I" things like that which I can't exactly explain why they're funny, they just are... maybe because they're so realistic... its almost the exact inverse of Hollywood humour where comedic moments usually stem from the fantastical or absurd). Anyway watch it if you can. I feel it has added to my life rather than merely stolen my time, and that, really, is how we can define a worthwhile movie.
