This is another extremely classy instalment from the terrific Russian director Anna Melikyan. The film is an almanac of contemporary romantic stories set in a bustling Moscow, brought together by a university lecture about love. The film burns with intelligence and fizzes with the kind of energy and charm that Melikyan brings to all of her films; yet this is arguably her most simple and mature picture to date, one which seems to suggest that the human search for love remains as vital as it is elusive. The cream of Russian acting talent is on display as always, including an hilarious cameo by Subtitle regular Yuri Kolokolnikov. A treat.
