Only with great imagination can one envision the glory of a former rest home for Soviet filmmakers. The lavish architecture appears to be crumbling, a testament to the end of an eral – ike the depicted idleness of the institution’s apparatchiks. They have made themselves at home with some sausage and pickled food. In the meantime, a writer ravaged by the crisis is seeking respite and fails to find it. A performance that can be likened to a jar full of relics, clichés, and pickled vegetables.
