With Silent Souls and Celestial Wives of Meadow Mari, Aleksei Fedorchenko emerged as the most talented and distinctive director in contemporary Russian cinema and this film, full of striking imagery, consolidates that reputation. Mixing humour with the grim business of Soviet history, it pictures a fleeting moment of hope when art mattered passionately and politically.

A group of avant-garde Constructivists are sent to the frozen north where people cling to traditional ways including mystic, pagan religion. A strange battle ensues between two world views and two systems of art. It is a battle that is perhaps still at the heart of Russian culture, where the fantastic mythologies of modernity and folk tradition remain locked in a furious struggle and the outcomes are often tragic.
