The mid-19th century, St. Petersburg. A Russian nobleman lives his life without leaving his bed. He dreams about the ideal life with no problems, no struggle, no worries. When the possibility comes to fall in love, to marry his beloved and to try living life he has always dreamt of, Oblomov returns to his bed. The life turns out to be too frightening for him.

However, this story makes us believe that everybody, even the strangest people are worthy of love. This story addresses every spectator in a deep emotional level.

Message of the director:

“Everybody knows Ivan Goncharov’s novel Oblomov, only few have read it. The cliché interpretation makes Oblomov a synonym of mental and physical laziness. Our version offers a very poetic and philosophic parable about the existential fragility of life.”
Alvis Hermanis
