“You shouldn’t film us. We’re just common people.” Thus begins Victor Kossakovsky’s mesmerizing, tragic, and raucous portrait of a Russian farm family. Beautifully shot in vintage black and white, The Belovs tells the story of twice-widowed Anna Belova, who lives with her brother Mikhail.

I advise watching Victor Kossakovsky's The Belovs (1994), but you do what the fuck you want--my dear one, my sunshine. It's the human race compacted into two elderly Russian peasants in need of Lithium and love. A great doc.
