Flights in Dreams and in Reality
We found ourselves watching Полёты во сне и наяву the other night, featuring Oleg Yankovsky and Lyudmila Gurchenko. The film dates to 1983 with Yankovsky's character, Sergei, having a hard time coming to terms with his 40th birthday. The architecture studio where Gurchenko's character, Larisa, worked reminded me a lot like the one my wife shared with colleagues when I first came to Vilnius in 1994.
