Description:
Six days in the life of Sergei Dovlatov, a political dissident and author whose breadth of mind far transcended the confines of the 1970s Soviet Union.

Leningrad, November 1971. The city is shrouded in fog. Another anniversary of the revolution is being celebrated, but the country is not making any progress. Sergei has first-hand experience of this stasis. The young writer's manuscripts are regularly rejected by the official media; his view on things is not desired. Others are experiencing similar problems, including his friend Joseph Brodsky, who is forcefully exiled. Dovlatov is determined to stay and lead a normal life with his wife Lena and daughter Katya. He wants to write about discovering reality: about shipyard workers, or the construction of the metro. Out of a tragicomic rondeau of rebellion and assimilation, pain and fatigue, ensues a portrait of an era of stagnation and its destructive effects.

"Dovlatov is one of the unconditional symbols of the last quarter of the 20th century. He is a superstar of Russian literature. He was larger than life, yet subtle and incredibly talented; it's a shame that we do not produce such men anymore." (Aleksei German Junior)
