Mysterious love like Northern polar aurora
11 March 2003 | by Dada_TonyaSee all my reviews


I visited St.Petersburg in Russia last week and bought a DVD of this film because I was very impressed of a face of actress on DVD cover, beautiful, young, mysterious and sad.

This is a story of young college student girl in St.Petersburg who fell in love with an old man in Moscow whom she believed her father at the beginning.

Beautiful actress Ms.Marina Aleksandrova took a roll of such student girl "Anya" and old but still handsome actor Mr.Aleksandr Zbruev took a part of a old medical doctor who was believed as her father.

Russian title of this film "Severnoe sianie" means "Northern Aurora" and also name of bullet train links St.Petersburg and Moscow. We can enjoy beautiful autumn scenes in both cities backed by lovely strings chamber music throughout this film.

Ending of this film is strangely passionate and desperate which is something like an aurora mysteriously shining in dark northern polar sky.
