A film about a modern village.
Vicious circle
29 min
Life in the provinces is a special world, a special way of life, a special relationship that is different from that in the big cities. Everyone here knows each other, and almost everything about each other. Everything here is like under a magnifying glass. The patriarchal way of life has changed little in recent years with technical progress. The old and the new. Everything here that is ugly bulges out with a vengeance, but the good things also do not go unnoticed. This film is a parable: a story about Russia, about the customs that prevail in the modern village.

The film is available only on the territory of the Russian Federation.

During the war, children, along with adults, worked in the fields and factories, shouldering household chores on their fragile shoulders. Many of them died from disease and lack of food. There was a severe famine, people were swollen from malnutrition, and in order not to die, they ate grass cakes and porridge with sawdust. "Everything for the front, everything for victory!" it was the slogan of the time. Despite the difficulties, they did not lose heart, worked hard and believed in victory over fascism.
