Plot synopsis
"Pelagiia, in both content and form, is designed to evoke a simpler time with fewer real-life consequences to actions. Unlike the hardboiled detective fiction of the 1990s, this detective series is frozen in a mythic past, with conscious nods to earlier detective and literary genres, channeling Father Brown, Miss Marples, Hercule Poirot, and Sherlock Holmes, and invoking Chekhov, Lermontov, Derzhavin, and Dostoevskii . The eight installments of this series (a total of 336 minutes of play-time) allow for an extremely slow unfolding of the plot, mirroring the unhurried pace of life in the idealized bucolic setting of provincial Russia created by the director.<...>"
