Plot synopsis
The film is constructed around interviews with Mikhail Kozakov, filmed in various periods of his life. All of them are very personal reflections of the wonderful actor and director, an intelligent and sophisticated man. The meaning of life, poetry, and his relationship with the acting profession are reflected as well. His thoughts are clear and penetrating. He speaks as if he is talking to himself - so natural and spontaneous are his intonations. He thinks out loud about things that have worried him throughout his entire life. Now his "unfinished conversation" will never be finished. On April 22nd, 2011, Mikhail Kozakov passed away.
