Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
People with a passion for horses are observed in this Russian film by filmmaker Kira Muratova. The film has no real plot. Instead it zeros in on several scenes in which people talk about or hang out around horses. In the first segment, set on the lawn of a seaside hospital, an healing, wheelchair bound jockey, a nurse and an eccentric circus performer, Viola, discuss the difference between racehorses and circus horses. Another scene is set at a racetrack where gunshots are heard in the background. Fashion models are doing a layout amongst the horses.
