Marina, a forty-year-old Russian woman, lives in a small village in South Leicestershire in England. Seven years ago she married Gregory, a village garage owner, a collector of Morris Minor cars and an Ipswich Town supporter. Marina met Gregory when he came to Russia to see Ipswich Town playing against Torpedo Moscow, and moved to England with her then five-year-old daughter in the hope of happiness and a secure future for her child. A journalist and a writer in her previous life, she now works as a local hairdresser and in her spare time writes for the parish magazine. Gregory loves her, and her daughter seems to flourish in a private school, but Marina doesn't feel happy and satisfied with her life - and can't really explain why. The feeling increases when she goes to London to meet Valentina, an old friend who is visiting from Moscow. Valentina has become a successful writer and Marina asks herself whether maybe she could also write books in Russian, her native language which ... Written by Neil McCartney on

A charming Russian film with a carefully considered screenplay
17 April 2011 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A modern setting, a contemporary tale, yet with a charm that is in many ways reminiscent of a bygone age.

With a welcome lack of gratuitous explosions and sfx, and a screenplay that is both perceptive and thought provoking, this is the story of an intelligent Russian woman who finds something lacking in life with her English husband.

Her dream life in the West has fallen far short of her expectations, and she has had plenty of time to reflect on this. In England she is perceived as a hairdresser, far removed from the writers' circles which she used to frequent in Moscow, where her talent was understood and recognised.

Location filming in the English countryside and Russian metropolis adds to the contrast between two very different cultures and expectations.

In the tradition of films such as Truly Madly Deeply and Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont, this is an absolute gem.
