Passions of Marina (16+)

Russia, 2004, colour, 55 min.
Director: Andrey Osipov
“Passion of Marina" is a film about the endless chain of clashes between the high spirit and rigidity of life, the ruthless reality of the twentieth century. The fate of poets in Russia was always tragic. And if that poet is a passionate woman, she is destined to loneliness and alienation of her genius.
