Sacrament of Fleur

Time Lapse: bowling, decently tipsy young man is going to throw the ball, tried to dissuade him, try to seat in place. He does not listen, breaks, the ball jumps off his fingers and flies. Muffled blow. Middle-aged man sitting at a nearby table, falls to the floor. Since the main character Dr. Tyrsa (Andrei Krasko) falls into a coma.

But what is a coma? Coma - a phenomenon intermediate between life and death. Coma - an abstract place, chalk quarry. There is an instructor (Fyodor Bondarchuk) - he is sort of long for the chief, who leads on this interval his group - those who recently fell into a coma. There are several points where the characters stop and rest.

This item required, but unread books in my life, for some it is a textbook on psychiatry, but for someone's story about the gray zainku. While the group did not read the book, she would not go further. Next item: tell us about that keeps you on the earth, leaving it unfinished business? Someone should go to educate her daughter, someone to remove from under the bed, dirty socks, which so upset his wife.

The Group is moving on, in one of the sites instructor pours all the magic potion, with the help it can be as invisible spirits to return briefly to the Earth, visit relatives.

Tyrsa sees his wife (Yelena Yakovleva) paid their last money to quacks, who promised to get him from the dead. As the daughter (Nellie Uvarov) inciting wedges charming scoundrel, mortician (Vladimir Epifantsev) to capitalize on his death. And then Tyrsa, returns from a coma. But not forever ... He is still time to get there - just a few minutes.

Paint - cheers, Yakovlev once again struck with the power of the dramatic game even in small episodes, Bondarchuk, as usual charismatic, Yepifantsev found his role. An interesting scenario is, well choose the location for filming a coma (active chalk quarry in the Voronezh region), good dialogue, funny jokes.
