5 AM. Barbara and Werner, 7 years into their marriage, have been arguing since 10 PM. They are on the verge of paying off their mortgage, but look into the abyss of “what’s next?”, opening up the floodgates of pent up anger and resentments. Nominated for 5 Golden Mask Awards, including best actress, best actor, best director and best play, Viktor Ryzhakov‘s staging of Ivan Vyrypaev’s razor sharp comedy “Sun Line” explores the many ways in which modern couples are prevented from making real contact with one another, delving into discourses on unity and difference, unnecessary and important, and about the invisible yet palpable solar line that divides us. Featuring stage and screen stars Yulia Peresild and Andrey Burkovskiy.

Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
