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

Horror story
3 October 2017 | by naurimas-1See all my reviews

The attempt to interpret life of the Russian writer Gogol paying attention to clerk's adventures in Russia, central Ukraine.

The plot is interesting, full of suspense related to mysterious and mystic murders.

The episodes of the film are related to jumps in time and links to dreams of the film's main hero.

Many humorous episodes related to Russian and Ukrainian lifestyle of the 19th century.

8/10
