Storyline

Oleg is a young gifted paramedic. His wife Katya works at the hospital emergency department. She loves Oleg, but is fed up with him caring more about patients than her. She tells him she wants a divorce. The new head of Oleg's EMA substation is a cold-hearted manager who's got new strict rules to implement. Oleg couldn't care less about the rules - he's got lives to save. His attitude gets him in trouble with the new boss. The crisis at work coincides with the personal life crisis. Caught between emergency calls, alcohol-fueled off-shifts, and search for a meaning in life, Oleg and Katya have to find the binding force that keeps them together. Written by CTB.ru

Failed minimalizm
22 May 2018 | by katiakompotSee all my reviews

The director is trying to create minimalist film. I can't help but compare it to Zvyagintsev's films. Unlike "Loveless" or "Elena" Arrhythmia was not executed well. In the beginning it seems like Katya has an issue with Oleg being an alcoholic, but the subject is never touched between them. So the issue of their relationship was not open. The way they solved their issue was also not open. Oleg's feelings and behavior were somehow understandable and believable. Why Katya decided to stay with him is a big question mark. The only nice minimalist moment that director captured perfectly giving you a full picture of their past was when Katya was dancing to "puberty" song. I could really feel that they met and fell in love in college and feelings they had for each other then. I even imagined their teenage years. It was really nicely and softly done. Lots of unnecessary scenes at work. It's like I watched 2 unfinished films, one about relationship, another about ambulance work. And 2 were not connected.
