Following the idiosyncratic Silent Souls (2010), director Alexey Fedorchenko again focuses on the rites and rituals of a Russian ethnic group, this time the enigmatic Meadow Mari, of the Ural Mountains. With names all beginning with 'O', such as Oshanyai, Osylay and Orika, the Mari gloriously demonstrate use of magic, ceremony and custom, creating a hugely enjoyable portrait of a community enthralled by nature and folklore.
