Utgoff talks about the spiritual nature of the film and tells us whether he feels he is a spiritual person. He also shares his experience of working with the director, who left him room to explore and even improvise, and more.

Never Gonna Snow Again: A masseur from the East enters the lives of the rich residents of a bland, walled off community. Despite their wealth, the residents emit an inner sadness, a longing. The mysterious newcomer’s hands heal, his eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhood. Zhenia, for this is his name, changes their lives.
