With Love, Lilly

With Love, Lilly

Lilly is a rather naïve and lonely woman who lives in the countryside. She is 35 and divides her time between caring for her elderly father and her work in a poultry slaughterhouse. Despite her moving charm, she lacks a man in her life. She is, however, looking hard and keeps meeting new candidates at encounters arranged in a friend’s hotel. Until the day she falls for a handsome pianist. An important example of Sadilova’s “female realism,” With Love, Lilly is one Russian woman’s quest for true love and happiness, told in a documentary style with amateur actors.
