Storyline

The year 1829. Nikolay Gogol, a young Third Section clerk, is desperate: his own books seem shallow and mediocre, so he keeps buying entire print runs just to burn them all. He is suffering from violent epileptic seizures and struggles to keep on working. Investigator Yakov Guro accidentally witnesses one such fit and realizes that Gogol's visions contain clues that could help solve actual crimes. Together, Gogol and Guro take on a particularly weird and baffling case that brings them to a small village of Dikanka, where everyone has a huge secret to hide. Written by TV3 Press Office

Something really cool
19 April 2018 | by dashulka-76217See all my reviews

I watched this film at home, when TV3 was showing it during these winter holidays. And I REALLY liked it very much. It's not a usual film. It's a TV series shown in cinemas and, to be honest, that's a great idea. Sitting among all the people who came there to watch it too helps to create a unique atmosphere. All the actors are perfect for the roles, I liked Oleg Menshikov most of all))) I advice you to watch it))
