My Thoughts are SilentBack to calendar
UKR, 2019, directed by Antonio Lukich, 104', OV engl. subtitles
Vadym is twenty-two. He’s a sound engineer and a downer. He’s going to Canada in three months. Forever. Before his departure, he’s assigned to record the voice of a very rare bird, which dwells only in the mountains of Ukraine’s Transcarpathian region.
This comedy follows a son and his mother on a trip to the west of Ukraine. The journey is a chance not only to re-define their relationships, but also for silent self-reflection – who are they and what does home mean? Those issues of identity, which are crucial to Ukrainian cinema in general, here acquire the paradigmatic form of a leitmotif, providing space for humor and a fresh view on modern Ukraine.
