I don’t remember when I watched this film but it was very likely in the aftermath of my Russia obsession years. In this film you will see a street kid in Sint Petersburg who is desperately missing his mother. For some reason I forgot she kicked him out of her house on the street. Of course the authorities do not do many attempts to pick him up and to find his mother. Instead of this they kick him into a military home. The boy is still missing his mother. He is saving some small change money to make a phone call to his mum. Then, on sunday he is off to go to church. Also this Russian orthodox priest did not come up with the idea to take the boy and make together a phone call to his mother. Instead of this he is taking the boy’s last saved money as a gift for the church. The theme of the film is not neccesarily about the Russian church. But I watched it through my own glasses. The film shows everything which is wrong with the church.
