Storyline

Egor is a vet at a training facility for hunting dogs in a remote region of the country. Surrounded by foxes, deer, badgers, and dogs, he lives in a small building next to the house of the facility's master. He treats the dogs, cleans the kennels, oversees the workers, and meets with clients and their dogs. It's easier for him to get along with dogs than with people. Egor is willing to take on any job to get closer to the facility's master and his near and dear. He wants the impossible - to become a member of that family. Written by Production

Veterinarian Between Two Worlds
12 November 2018 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

Core of the World (in English) - In the fir and spruce forest of a remote region a young veterinarian, Egor, struggles to keep a mauled dog from dying. He is employed, housed and fed by Nikolai, a breeder of foxes and dogs, who recommends that Egor look for other employment if he is so keen on saving the dog. But Egor persists anyway, gaining the sympathy of Nikolai's daughter Dasha in the process. Terrified of intimacy, keeping his emotions bottled up inside, and preferring the company of animals to people, Egor seems not only incapable of giving Dasha anything in return, but a danger to himself. When animal rights activists inadvertently harm the foxes, Egor becomes alarmingly unhinged.

I am drawn to these stories of loners who sit precariously on the edge of human society, where reality and fantasy blur. It is a wonderful theme, compellingly told, with capable acting and beautiful boreal forest scenery. It could use better dialogue, but altogether it is intriguing and satisfying. Seen at the 2018 Toronto international film festival.
