School of Seduction

dir. Alina Rudnitskaya 2018 Denmark 93 min.

As they say in Russia: You cannot sit on two chairs at the same time. But that’s precisely what modern Russian women are trying to do. One chair is the patriarchal community, the second is female empowerment.

Russian women want men to support them financially, but at the same time they don't want to lose their independence. This is the dilemma at the heart of the film. Our three heroines take matters in their hands and start a course called ”The School of Seduction,” where they learn how to live, think and behave in order to be loved. But is this really what they want and dream about?
