The film shows the lifestyles of modern Russian oligarchs’ wives in the years after the collapse of Communism. But if you expect to see emptiness masked by the glitter and riches, you’ll be in for a shock when you see a deeply rooted, existential need for self-expression through art, as well as an awareness of the possibilities and challenges life brings.
