The story of a young man experiencing an existential journey. It is not about the other characters per se, but rather, what these characters bring to Mitya’s experience. Mitya’s experience is in contrast to what is going on around him in the physical sense.
Girl – “femme fatal” in age of about 14 – Ergolina (sumptuous young actress Tatyana Drubich) is absolutely convincing though everything is quite virgin. The hero of the movie – youth 14 years old too – try to understand the nature of Love on the background of real nature as scene is summer camp (“Soviet pioneer’s camp” – like scout camp). The action is slow similar to Russian summer itself, but it is advantage here: the psychological effect (empathy) is accelerated and is picked up. Film contains “chapters”: from “Sunstroke” in the beginning towards “Education of Feeling” in the end and all these are metaphors of the Love.
