Sometimes, all we need is a mirror. Look at yourself. Look very honestly. Consider your face and love it. Love your soul, full of painful questions that can't find out of beautiful Today. And look at yesterday with eyes of hopeful child, with eyes of teenager full of doubt, and love your Yesterday, Today and its misty, any Tomorrow. Because nothing is never clear and true. Because our whole life is a search for questions, answers and compromises. Because all our live is a great miracle.

By My Side is a poetic meditation on our inability to notice the most important thing in life: love.

And yet, it always comes back...
The movie tells about the young woman in modern Moscow which is compelled to survive in the conditions of the rigid competition not only at work, but also in private life. The heroine doesn't manage to hear the desires in continuous vanity and diligence to keep in the megalopolis. Hurrying on protection of the project on which its future career depends, it nearly doesn't force down the small child who oddly has appeared on the carriageway.
Evening of memory of Alexey Balabanov. It is the second notable screen version of Kafka’s unfinished novel The Castle. It is a sophisticated and ambiguous parable of an individual desperately trying to preserve his identity while struggling against sinister and invisible bureaucrats who rule the village from inside the titular castle. This funny, somewhat bizarre, and distinctive film won official selections to film festivals in Montreal and Rotterdam, and two national Nika Awards.
