And in the beginning was the Word: a long sequence of long travelings across Moscow streets following the lead actress and the people there, with the sound in a wide wor(l)d zapping. Then, people in the rain, in groups ,exposed before the camera as in a proscenium and the improvisation of relations and looks. The whole film is a calligraphic look at what is shooting: actors, scenes, people, places, movements, looks.
Amazing picture. So happy to come across this one. Soviet response to new wave. 1966 picture reminiscient of Godard, Malle , Truffaut and perhaps a little La Dolce Vita as welll. Restless young woman flirting in and out of amourous adventures and encounters with upper class artistes trying to find her own identity. Not plot driven but pic certainly has a certain ennui.
