Elena · dir. Andriej Zwiagincew
Russia 2011, 109’


10/24, 17:30 · Od Nowa – large hall

Vladimir is a rich, calculating, cold, and self-centered man. Elena is a nurse, whom Vladimir met one day, at the hospital. Their relationship is nothing short of an arrangement. They differ in many things, but they have one thing in common: he has the money and she provides care. One day, Vladimir ends up in the hospital, following a heart attack. When he goes there, he realises that his days are numbered. He decides to bequeath all his property to his daughter, and Elena would have just a monthly pay, until her death. For Elena, this is the end of hope that she would provide financial help for her son from the previous marriage. Elena transforms from a shy and obedient wife to a determined woman, capable of anything. She concocts a tragic plan that will change the life of her family forever.
