Storyline

Marina is an attractive upper-class woman with an opulent wardrobe and a good-looking husband. She's employed as a social worker, a profession offering meager financial rewards. Thankfully her affluent father provides the supplementary income which her job as well as hapless husband cannot. Yet instead of finding contentment in her win-win situation, Marina carries on an affair with her best friend's husband, and also initiates a bizarre series of erotic encounters with a deadbeat cop who previously raped her.

Beautiful raw and psychological drama that fascinates till the end
2 February 2012 | by fl-stuitSee all my reviews

I LOVE YOU... I LOVE YOU... wonderful how these three words in the film are used as an emotional weapon.

Beautiful raw and psychological drama that fascinates till the end of the movie. Besides the average visuals in the first few minutes, the rest of the film is visually well made. A fine Eastern bloc atmosphere by the way, which shows us the sad reality of Russian society today (as we may believe Angelina Nikonova, director).

Twilight Portrait is not an advertisement for Russia and his fine society. Nice cops though ;)... I just booked my ticket for holiday... who's next?
