He thought he was in control of his own life. Then he lost his wife and thought it was the hardest hit he could handle. It was not.
An amazingly subtle and wise film about the man who suddenly realizes that all his life is collapsed after he found the letter of his dead wife to the unknown lover.
A very good script: excellent dialogues, developed characters. One of Oleg Yankovsky is brilliant with his manner of psychological self-defense. The analysis of this fearful situation is deep and develops, through the variation of black-humoured episodes, into the real human tragedy.
