Vasily Shukshin delivers probably his most arresting film in this story of a Siberian tractor driver and his wife who travel to the South for the first time. The rural couple collide with various urban archetypes, including a linguistics professor and a con artist, but beyond these humorous interactions lingers a quiet melancholy, a fitting cross-section of life in the USSR and the struggle for belonging.
