Plot synopsis
Ironic parable.
In a village live a Russian, a German, a Tatar, a gipsy and a Jew. One day an unknown person appears, who calls himself the ëSurveyorí. After his appearance improbable things begin to happen to each of the villagers. The heroesí paths part, but after a while, on the eve of the new era of Aquarius, they gather once again in this sacred place... Sergei Selyanovís film is the final part of a trilogy by this widely esteemed cinematographer. But after "Name Day" and "All Soulsí Day", "The Time for Sorrow" seems like a smile of awakening after a bad dream, like a transition to summertime after winter twilight.
