In Women's Paradise, a college professor-writer is separated from his wife after committing adultery and discovers a women's paradise where his lover, a female student, and his wife are living happily together. Could this truly be paradise or just the projection of a male fantasy? Maintaining a realistic and humorous tone, the film gradually departs from reality and shifts between magic realism and the present, bringing the viewer into a mesmerizing state. 2000, Uzbekistan, in Russian with English subtitles, 35mm, color, 74 minutes.
