For the 21st film Maestro A. Puipa cherished inspirations in a book “Bumblebee Honey” by Swede T. Lindgren. He chose minimalist storytelling and inhabited eternal sense of humour to capture strange relationships and unsolvable feud of two brothers.

She was a mistress and wife at same time. Unexpected arrival of Isabel brings back sentimental feelings and bright memories. Younger writer sacrifices to calm down their painful and vengeful sufferings. But who this kind woman really is?
Three actors shine in northernly cold story about burden of guilt, hatred, love, redemption and death. Legendary J. Budraitis won the Best Actor award for sensitive performance at Scandinavian IFF, where mystical drama was crowned as the Best international Film.
