Hit By Lightning

Hit By Lightning is a film adopted from the novels of the Lithuanian writers Yolita Skablauskaite, Petras and Povilas Dirgelas. The director was looking for literature which would remind him of the magic realism of the spirit in Garcia Marquez's books. The film consists of three novels three different lives of the personages. You will meet here the dancing teacher Raphael, who turned into the bird, the eternal wanderer Theodor Milkus, the lonely museum guide Joan. They are united by the similarity of their souls. This is the feast, the noble failures, full of their talented visions and the sense of guilt. Through them the main theme of the film the theme of the artist's destiny is being revealed. A man, once hit by the dazzling lightning, can no longer be the same as other people, to keep up to everyday routine, he lives in the world of his fantasy. Therefore the genre of the film is unique-allegoric fairy tale.
