Saturday, July 14, 4:30 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater
Dir. Boris Khlebnikov. 2017, 116 mins. DCP. In Russian with English subtitles. With Alexander Yatsenko, Irina Gorbacheva, Galina Averyanova, Polina Ilyukhina, Vladimir Kapustin. By day, Oleg (Yatsenko) is a paramedic dedicated to saving lives at any cost. By night—or whenever he is finally off work—he is a stunted good ol’ boy who drinks too much and does not realize his wife, a well-regarded young physician, is ready to leave him. Boris Khlebnikov’s entertaining and extraordinarily well-acted dramedy manages to be both an insightful portrait of a marriage navigated by ambitious equals—who are never judged for being so—and a sidelong critique of a health care system caught between freewheeling, perpetual triage and cold, uncaring bureaucracy.
