Sailing along the river Volga, passengers of the "Maxim Gorky" cruise ship could easily have been characters from a 19th-century Russian novel. Women and men with their best years behind them and hopes of finding love once again spend three weeks on the water, surrounded by faux opulence. Intimate conversations blossom between new acquaintances as the camera peers into the depths of its subjects. A film filled with dramas both large and small, music, singing, dancing, a lot of alcohol, and human moments that wrench your heart while making it swell with compassion.

"The river floating behind the film's characters slowly becomes a metaphor for life. The Russian soul is rooted in every longing gaze, gesture and dream of these people. The film's gentle humour arises from the daily routines of its charming subjects and warms the heart. You would love the film to last a little longer." (Aistė Račaitytė)
