Volia left her childhood home in Vitebsk a long time ago, so talking to her relatives in person—instead of through a messenger—becomes quite an event and a revelation. Now that parents and daughter are close together, the time for some important and painful questions has come. Perhaps these questions are not the easiest and most pleasant, but they had to be answered sooner or later. Especially since Volia is no longer the little girl she used to be. Now she can talk to her mother and father as equals and, together with them, try to find something that, it would seem, has already become hopelessly lost.
The film "Common Language" is a touching example of an intimate documentary that describes the world from the first-person point of view. The author of the film, Volia Chajkouskaya, decided on a difficult experiment by recording conversations with her parents on camera. The result was a sincere, full of genuine emotions, confession of love for her relatives.Movies are for individual viewing only. Why?
