“Me Too” is the last film directed by the late Aleksey Balabanov. The film serves as a farewell, a confession, and a real-life fairy tale about one’s hope for a happy end. A powerful black 4X4 speeds along a deserted summer road. Its six passengers are looking for the bell tower of happiness, said to be somewhere between Saint Petersburg and Uglich, next to the now defunct nuclear power plant. The bell tower takes people to the land of happiness. Although not everyone is chosen, the six passengers believe that they will make the cut to eternal happiness. Starring Oleg Garkusha.

The latest from Alexey Fedorchenko, the director that brought you “Silent Souls,” is a beguiling, painterly portrait of a culture driven by ritualistic appreciation of female beauty and sexuality, at times akin to an Eastern version of the Decameron. Pagan folklore is alive amongst the Meadow Mari, a Finno-Ugric ethnic group in Western Russia. The film is comprised of 23 vignettes that center on the sensual lives of a group of Mari women, recreating an idiosyncratic world of magical realism in which female fertility, beauty, and, ultimately, happiness is the driving force. The film has received several prestigious awards in Russia and abroad, including recognition at the Venice and Stockholm film festivals. Starring: Julia Aug.
