MY THOUGHTS ARE SILENT

Antonio Lukich
Ukraine, 2019, 103 Min

The Ukraine: whilst in the east the war rumbles on, people in the west dream of freedom. Between these extremes, life goes on unabated. Families continue to get together at the dinner table, leading to the inevitable questions of getting married, having children and settling down.

Vadim needs money, and hope for the future: thus the offer of recording animal sounds for a video game company and ultimately, perhaps, a job offer in Canada, sounds tempting. And so the sound engineer sets off from Kiev to his native Uzhgorod, located in the Carpathian mountains region, where he is met at the train station by his clingy mother. Refusing to take no for an answer, she accompanies her son on his quest for a rare bird species. En route he wonders to himself what is worse: being questioned by the police or having to answer his mother's questions?

In his feature film debut filmmaker Antonio Lukich breaches a universal issue: the need to break free from an overbearing mother and find one's own place, and identity, in life. In MY THOUGHTS ARE SILENT the result is a highly amusing and, at times, bizarre comedy on a mother-son relationship, the stagnation of which appears to have rubbed off on, or alternatively been strongly influenced by, the prevailing atmosphere in the country as a whole.
