Life as a Novel

Jizn kak roman

Directing: Vladimir Nepevny

What they achieved goes beyond the confines of their specialized field of linguistics and literary criticism. And the twists and turns of their fates could serve as the basis of an action adventure novel. Their friendship arose in an instant, but their quarrel lasted over half a century.

And to the end of their lives they were to search for the answer to one question: What were they to one another?
