Dir. Gueorgui Danielia

Bouzykin is always ready to help. He’s often asked, and doesn’t know how to refuse. His problem is to try and unravel his complicated relationships with his neighbours, his colleagues, his wife and his lover…until the women both leave him and he decides to become a new man. This comedy is an ironic, satirical, poetic and clear-sighted analysis of the society it describes.
