Plot synopsis
The early 20th century. The Russian Empire is falling apart, the devastating communist revolution is imminent. In a dilapidated house in some God-forsaken part of Russia there lives a bunch of dreamy poets looking like idiots. For them arts is a way to protect themselves from the horrible reality. Theirs is the imaginary world of the blessed. Powerlessness and self-deception. The absurdity of romanticism… They will be swept away by the looming sinister epoch. History always repeats itself. Cinematic language of the film was created as a dedication to the poetical cinema style invented in second half of 20th century by A.Tarkovskiy, A.Konchalovskiy, N.Mikhalkov, A.German.
