This short movie was the first work of Aleksandr Kajdanovsky as a director, unfortunately much known for his acting career.
He wrote the script in just one night, based on the short story "The garden of forking path...展开s" by Jorge Luis Borges.
There was always something mysterious and tragic about him, as a preview of his premature death.
He rejected conventionalisms, and opened his soul just with the ones he really loved.
Friends said that "Aleksandr was like an antenna, he could catch every signal of hypocrisy".
Maybe that's why he left just a few people to get into his inner world, without still being a loner as he always was.
