ABOUT THE FILM

A charming cinematic poem based on the director's own childhood memory. Nikita, reluctant to go to his flute lesson, wanders about and gets caught by local bullies and locked up in an abandoned hut. Nikita's fear gradually gets conquered by his curiosity until he hears the imaginary melody of sunlight along with his flute.

子供時代に捧げられた作品。 大人が守ってあげたいと願っても、子供らは日々小さな冒険を繰り返している…。 そんな普遍的な光景を美しい映像作品に仕上げた逸品。 いじめっ子の描写が淡白だった気もするけど…。

I was impressed by the mixture of nostalgia and former USSR childhood memory and fantastic music.
