When Miron’s wife Tanya passes away, he asks his friend Aist to help him say goodbye according to the rituals of the Merya culture—an ancient tribe from West-Central Russia. As the two men set out on a long journey with her body, Miron relates details of his marriage, with unintended consequences.

MUBI's take

Winner of the Critics Prize at Venice and highly acclaimed on its US release, Silent Souls is both a haunted love story and an existential road trip. Filling a compact 75 minute runtime with emotional richness and gorgeous photography, rarely does melancholy feel so beautiful or flow so easily.
