On the eve of his fortieth birthday, a man realizes nothing he has achieved in his life has amounted to very much.


"Sergey is an attractive man approaching forty who is acutely aware that nothing he has achieved during the better part of his life has brought him any satisfaction. His frantic sprints between his work, his lover and his family, and the constant lies he uses to explain his absence, only tighten the noose around his neck. The three days that separate him from the Big 40 might present an opportunity to change everything, or he might just lose it all instead...

The Soviet update of the literary concept of the "superfluous man," filmed at the end of the Brezhnev Stagnation, was Balayan's most successful title. It was here that he first engaged Oleg Yankovsky, an actor who subsequently appeared in the majority of the director's films; without guile or pathos, he captures the existential dimension and contradictions of the morally questionable hero".
(Ulf Kjell Gür)
