BFMAF 2019 - Brief Encounters


This event is not available for online booking,
please contact the Box Office.

Kira Muratova’s first solo feature is a beautifully unfolding love triangle. A geologist who is always away (played by cult folk singer Vladimir Vysotsky), his wife who can’t stand her work, and a woman who arrives at her doorstep, his mistress (Nina Ruslanova). When the lead actress dropped out at the last minute, Muratova took on the part of Valentina. Muratova’s only major acting role is an affecting performance in this poetic, vibrant, deeply melancholic film.
