Description: A woman is forced to examine the emptiness of her life in this stark drama from the Soviet Union. Lena (Yevgenya Uralova) is a woman in her late twenties who loves her boyfriend (Aleksandr Belyavsky) but in time comes to see that their relationship serves no useful function. What's more, she sees that her friends are for the most part empty-headed lackeys, causing her to wonder just what is the point of her life. Director Marlen Khutsiev, who previously made the well-received I Am Twenty, displays a strong stylistic debt to Michelangelo Antonioni in this feature, which received one of its few screenings (since its original release in 1967) at the 2000 Locarno Film Festival as part of a retrospective on Soviet filmmaking.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
