A psychological drama. A main character is a present-day urban girl who is acting unpredictably many times and makes a viewer to have contradictory feelings about herself.
In The Woman of the Day the director Aleksandr Baranov elaborates on the theme of a non-Soviet city turning Almaty into a capitalistic city with trade outlets, fashionable design interiors and criminals. In Gongofer the theme of the city evolves into that of concrete jungles. By the plot the characters of the film perceive a city as a natural landscape, undoubtedly hostile to them. Therefore, the task of creating a special state in the images boiled down to the hypertrophying of space and materials – concrete walls were made visually cold and rough, space– small and inconvenient, the colour design was dominated by grey hints. As a result, the city environment depicted reminded of an enchanted forest inhabited by mysterious and weird creatures. This is the first experience of creating the image of a city as a gloomy sinister monster.
