Storyline

This is the story of one day in the life of Elizabeth Glinka, the head of "Fair Care" foundation, a philanthropist, a doctor and a human rights activist. As the day starts, Elizaveta and her husband Gleb are going to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. Liza is planning to spend some time with her family, waiting for her sons and close friends to arrive. The last thing to do is to drop by Paveletsky train station to check the campaign of the Fund for sending humanitarian supplies to people in need. Suddenly, she is addressed by the father of a girl suffering from a severe disease, and Doctor Lisa agrees to help. This request yields lots of unexpected circumstances into the well-planned day.

The story of a real hero
28 October 2020 | by PellyTellySee all my reviews

Dr. Liza is a real hero of our time. She is the kind of person who remind others how much depends on each of them.

Elizaveta Glinka is a doctor who has been helping the homeless and terminally ill all her life.

The film "Doktor Liza", directed by Oksana Karas, tells us about one day in the life of Dr. Lisa, who, despite big family celebration, manages to help other people.

This picture definitely deserves attention. It is not as loud as some blockbuster but such simple life stories can surprise us and even make each of us a little bit better. We face an example of true kindness and mercy.

I am glad that a film in her honor was released on the screens and it'll allow a large number of viewers to find out who this woman was, why she deserves applause and why thousands of ordinary people still adore her, at whom we usually wouldn't even have a look in the street...

I'd like to recommend the film "Doktor Liza" for those who appreciate serious thoughtful cinematography. This year there weren't many really strong works worth attention. But "Doktor Liza" is positively one of them.
