Wenn es blendet, öffne die Augen

When It Blinds, Open Your Eyes

Ivette Löcker
Zhanna and Lyosha are survivors. The couple, now in their mid-thirties, became heroin addicts in the turbulent years of upheaval in Russia. They know their days are numbered, and pit their frail zest for life and gallows humor against this fact. The film draws on these moments and offers an intimate portrayal of a fragile and highly ambivalent love affair.
