Harsh as raw horseradish vodka, but also glorious in its way.
A woman lives in a small village in Russia. One day she receives the parcel she sent to her husband, serving a sentence in prison. Confused and angered, she sets out to find why her package was returned to sender. A captivating, hallucinatory plunge into Russia’s atrophied civil society, in which a woman’s search for answers is rewarded with humiliation and abuse.
The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
The film will be screened at Bíó Paradís after the festival.
