Simple Things

Sergei Maslov is a badly paid hospital anesthetist being worn down by his wretched living conditions and roommates, a Georgian driver and an infirm old woman. To make matters worse, he loses his drivers license and suddenly has to cope with his daughter leaving home. He is only slightly placated by the income he gets caring privately for an aging actor, who starts overburdening him with his senile whims. A great deal of time passes before Maslov realizes the significance of the “uneasy lightness of being”.
