MIFF 2019

Fairly flavorless post-war misery-borscht mild paprika'd with icky infanticide, a bit of the old tried'n'true side-by-side surrogate fertilizin', mid-seizure snogs, just cuz, and memorable face-acting from Vasilisa Perelygina. Nice tense standoff twixt she and the snooty mother-in-law. Extra 1/2 star for being Russian.
