Valeriya Gay Germanika
Long, confusing, sometimes sexy but unsatisfying Ruskie infidelity drama.
In an attention getting opening, Lilic shows up for a heart check with fetching Dr. Petri, who announces that their spouses are having an affair, before a SUV mows down a bus stop behind still confused Lilic, launching a complicated sequence of events, where reality and metaphor mix without sufficient indicators.
Blue tinged colour & 'Scope images are occasionally striking but the piece is confusing and uninvolving. At nearly two hours, it outlasts its value as drama or guessing game.
