I JUST DON'T GET IT, IT'S MY RUSSIAN SOUL

The title of the film is spoken in a portion of the audio track of the film. It represents the monologue from a young Russian man to his English girlfriend, explaining his Vodka habit. I just don’t get it? It’s my Russian soul. Why can’t she understand? The voice we hear is of the woman. About the film it explains only the style and technique, a series of questionably related parts.

Director Statement

I was told about a Buddhist monk who was once asked,
“How many mistakes have you made in your life?”
Being a wise and holy man, I expected his reply would
be a small number. He said, “One after another”.
How perfect. That is my aspiration, simply to work and
make mistakes.
