Tears Were Falling is a beautiful fairy tale for adults. Prolific actor, Evgeni Leonov, plays Vasin, a loving husband, father, and all-round good, community-minded man. That is, until a fragment of a magic mirror got into his eye, altering his world view.
Vasin becomes angry, picky, irritable, and just plain rude. He starts to see the world in a gloomy light. He insults and offends everyone around him at home and at work. Anger and suspicion overwhelm his heart. He sees enemies, schemers and thieves everywhere. In complete despair Vasin weeps bitterly. And along with his tears, the unfortunate glass shard disappears.
