I'm amazed at some techniques that Director Mikhalkov used in this film. That scene where ex-couple was having a confrontation there suddenly was defeaning background noise, like a train passing by. And the panning scenes amongst utensils in a close up manner heightens anticipation. There are also scenes where the lights go off and a sort of spotlight was focused on either the man or woman. There is genuine uniqueness in the film that, when given more thought of, comprises fragments of one encompassing message. Do check out this film.
