A paramedic devoted to his patients struggles to make time for his wife who begins to believe his patients are more important to him than she is.
A review by EnoVarma:
"Aritmiya is a story of a Russian husband and wife working as doctors told in realistic style. Katya is a surgeon, Oleg an ambulance doctor. They live in a small apartment, struggling with money and even more with their work: the health department is all but broken. As is their marriage. For Oleg, a sensitive soul passionate about his job, it is a well of endless angst, that he and his collegues are not given a chance to perform their job adequately.
This is a captivating, deeply humane movie, very true to life. It lacks a certain finesse in execution, but it makes up for that with its dedicated depiction of the people and their surroundings. The ambulance cases are so well made, that they are always the highlights of film. The movie is carried by the excellent actors playing the parts of Oleg and Katya.
In the end, nothing has changed, and therein lies the message of the movie."
