Storyline

There are two of them: a mother and a girl. They have no names. And they are in a constant run. The mother runs away from the daughter in an attempt to start new life, and the girl runs after her mother as she has no idea how to live without her. This endless run is full with repeated mistakes and resembles a barrel-organ sorrowful song or a spinning-top rotation. This small ridiculous toy "volchok" was the first toy in the girl's life, the only thing that tied her with the mother. But one day this running comes to an end. Written by KOKTEBEL Film Company

Dark, depressing but utterly riveting
3 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A realistic depiction of a relentlessly depressing story. Blessed with superb acting and an excellent script. The film may be a rude punch in the face of the viewer but reflection will reveal a film that is visually beautifully orchestrated. Volchock also benefits from an outstanding performance by a child actor who out-performs other good child actors. Her performance is heart-wrenching as everything turns darker and darker, losing colour and light for her an her mother. There is bravery in presenting a film that is relentlessly down-beat with no redemption and no chink of light at the end. SPOILER - the opening scenes may not seem to relate to what follows. But this is the birth of the daughter in the most extreme of circumstances. Watch, listen and follow what then happens in the ever-downward spiral of mother and daughter.
