Russian director Victor Kossakovsky shot this documentary from a single perspective, training his camera out his Saint Petersburg apartment window over the course of a year, capturing the comings and goings of his neighbors and the constant tearing up and repaving of a section of street. We see people walking dogs, rolling around drunk in the rain, giving and receiving a bouquet of flowers; all the while a work crew struggles mightily with a hole in the pavement, which grows larger with each passing season. Over time the interminable construction project becomes absurdly comic. When a water main finally bursts, filling the hole and surrounding street with cascading water, it's like the climax of an extended visual gag. In Russian with subtitles. 82 min.
