Cult hero Sergei Livnev returned to directing for the first time in 24 years with this quietly powerful exploration of regret and forgiveness. Aleksei Serebryakov is at his best as Mark, a suicidal artist who is forced to confront a complicated and painful family history when his father, a famous conductor, develops dementia. Deftly comedic yet never shying away from the darkness at the heart of this father-son relationship, Livnev shows a new side of his filmmaking abilities after so many years away from the camera.
