The Barnet Touch
25 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A lonely aging city engineer and amateur artist Pavel on his doctors orders decides to holiday at a rural coastal farm collective, to paint and for much needed relaxation. Pavel is warmly greeted at the farm, and two charming children befriend him, once everyone finds out he can fix things, Pavel can hardly get a moment to himself. The young girl Nyuska  exclaims and constantly reminds him, "landlords must do subsidiary work" after he cleans up and moves into an old shack ... A simple beautifully crafted heart warming film. Two outstanding! child actors are fantastic support for the wonderful lead role from Vasiliy Merkurev (Pavel). A touching and positive final message brings a tear to my eye .. Boris Barnet's final film is one of many treasured gems from the great director. Pure cinematic joy, crafted with original style direct from his humanitarian heart, that magical Barnet Touch ...
