A young man goes to see a doctor for a random check-up. Although they don't seem to know each other, the doctor, a young woman, tells him that his wife is cheating on him with her husband. The man doesn't know whether to believe her at first and he is stuck between fear and paranoia. He decides not to confront his wife, and goes back to the doctor who, in order to make him believe, gives him a guided tour of the hotel where their partners are supposed to meet. Soon enough, the betrayed couple starts a relationship on its own, although it remains unclear whether they do this out of real love, revenge, or mutual sympathy for being in the same situation.Written by
a film like exploration of ideas. about love, the other, reflection of yourself in the near person. need of revenge and stability and happiness. beautiful. interesting. but a kind of iceberg. because all is reduced at suggestion. and the tradition of Russian meditation about the great themes of life is a not small resource in this sense. the film has all for be an admirable work - cinematography, actors, dialogues. but the story in real and profound sense is missing. and, out of doubt, for a part of public this could be a good thing. because it is a Russian film. so... different. but only for a part of public.
