Ouch. An idyllic family situation in the Soviet countryside is ruined when a former associate and current NKVD officer returns home. Funny, sad, and then monstrously bleak. Needed some Stoli to get through it.
Had I seen this 20 years ago under the influence of psilocybin I'd have thought it the best film ever made. I enjoyed the plankton villain and the angler fish. Ride the Hasselhoff!
