Misha is a little boy who dreams of meeting a moose — a real flesh-and- blood moose. His obsession keeps him entertained while spending weekends with his dad. Years go by, and Misha’s dream is never once fulfilled. He gives up hope, but then, all of a sudden, an unexpected encounter occurs. Whether this is a stroke of good or bad luck will be food for thought for a long time to come. [subtitles]
Director’s Statement: Leonid Shmelkov
This film came to my mind mostly in images, without any concrete words. In total, it is a film about love, about relations between the boy and his father, about the problems of communication between people. And actually less about the moose. This story is somehow connected to my own life, but not directly.
