Roads to Koktebel2003

  • 4.1
After his wife's death and the loss of his job, an aerodynamics engineer sets off from Moscow with his eleven-year-old son for his sister's house in Koktebel by the Black Sea. With no money or means of transport, they drift through the expansive landscapes of Russia at the mercy of chance. The father is content to meander as he tries to rebuild his self-respect, piece together his broken life and win back the trust of his son. Meanwhile, the boy impatiently dreams of reaching the mythic coastal resort to start a new life of emancipation and gliders flying in the wind. When the father meets & falls for a beautiful young doctor, the boy sees her as an intrusion on the only loving relationship in his life, and sets off to complete the journey by himself.

This is a wonderful film, very rich and poetic. The landscape is one of the main characters and probably the best actor in the film, but then..... The actors were very good, very real and honest in their portrayal and understanding of the characters they portrayed.

The film offers a solution to a life in despair.

Thank you for having it in your collection.
