Very well done. A poignant story of parental repression. The mise en scene of the Russian countryside compliments this film because of it's natural beauty with it's growth and rejuvenation.

Beautifully simple and amazingly strong at the same time! Many references to other Russian filmmakers and probably writers. I loved it! the music make it even stronger! We need to see more of this style.
Thank you

ストーリーは新しくはないけれど、映像が良かったです。ロシアの田舎の貧しい保守的な家族の様子がよく伝わってきました。少女に起きたことは悲劇だけれど、そこから彼女の新しい人生の始まりを予期させるエンディングが良かったです。

この作品を見て感じたことは、人は人と付き合う時に自分との関係はどんな近いでも、自分の意識を人に押し付けないでよく他人の立場に立って考えるのは一番いいと思います。

緊張感がずっと保たれていて、最後で変わったのが印象的でした。
