It is a story of love and friendship, proclaiming the triumph of the universal human values. Unaware of the approaching war, Russian and German engineers find themselves united by one common goal at the glass manufacturing plant in USSR.
I'd like to say some words to clear an idea of this film. Before I saw it I have seen an interview with Abdrashitov and Mindadze and can say, that my perception was ready to this cleaver movie. Also I saw almost all of the films of Abdrashitov. All of them in my opinion can be called Art-House or at least "movie not for all". "Magnitnie buri" is not an exception. The story can be seen as very simple, noir and so on. But it's a metaphysic story. The people live they simple lives in a small town, but at night they are changing absolutely, so as they would be influenced throw a magnetic storm or an mystic power. They fight with each other like crazy. But in the morning they don't remember that... It can be that the screenplay writer Mindadze has wrote a story about our relationships with our subconscious. Sometimes it could not be controlled... Will be ready the hero of film to take it under the control? See the movie;)
