Compartment No. 6

Winner of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, a young Finnish woman leaves her Russian girlfriend behind to embark on an unusual train journey to the arctic part of Murmansk.

In 1990s Moscow, Finnish student Laura has become lovers with her urbane and glamorous professor Irina. Evidence mounts that Irina is not as serious about their affair as Laura, and when the professor pulls out of a planned joint trip to look at ancient petroglyphs, Laura undertakes the long train journey to Murmansk on her own. In compartment 6, she encounters her companion on the journey: Vadim, a misogynistic, drunken lout who immediately insults her. But as time passes, and the two experience terrain rough in more ways than one, an unexpected bond is formed between these very different people.
