Strogii Unosha is a deconstruction of the film of the 1930s "A Severe Young Man" directed by Abram Room.
The main character of original film is in search of "communist ideal, model for the new society under construction". In parallel, a love story unfolds: a young man falls in love with the wife of a « bourgeois and conservative » professor.
Strogii Unosha erase the political and ideological dimension of "A Severe Young Man" to create a kind of surreality, between dream and reality, imagination or memory where characters appear and disappear to represent the inner forces of desire.
