Trubchevsk is a quiet Russian backwater where nothing much happens, a place where everybody knows everybody else’s business. Yet Anna (Kristina Schneider) has managed to keep her affair with her long-distance truck driver neighbour (Egor Barinov) secret, conspiring to meet while both are working away from home. In motorway hotels, the adulterous pair plot a future together, though whether either of them can commit to facing exposure of their relationship to their families and the wider community is doubtful. Measured out in mannered style and with optimum dramatic restraint, Larisa Sadilova’s faithless fable is a funny, distinctive delight. MH
