Advertising of "Dura" make sense of funny film for resting. Really it is hard, offensive drama. Grotesque, 'cartoon' persons of second plane. Great actors, nice play in the center of view.
Film opens souls of three main characters. Film asks about responsibility of creator. Any creator. Artist or actor, director or mother... Film cause you to laugh and cry at the same time. Many times. Film is based on some 'today' situation here, in Russia. But it's basic senses, ideas are eternal.
In film we see invalid woman. But she is shown WITHOUT pity to her, WITHOUT any 'social dramatization' of her life. She lives in real world, and this world is NOT 'politically correct' at all.
