Listener / The Confidant / Slushatel / Слушатель (2002) DVD9
The CEO of a large Moscow company, Sergei Petrov (Nikita Vysotsky) unexpectedly loses his wife, his company, and his self-respect in one foul swoop. Now unemployed, depressed and morose, Petrov meets up with an old school friend Kulema (Mikhail Yefremov). Whereas Petrov’s life (up until the divorce) has been a model of success, Kulema has chosen to lead an entirely different life on the fringes of society.
After hitting rock bottom, Petrov decides to step back into society and apply for work. Kulema is amazed when Petrov lands a seemingly wonderful job that includes meals, board, and 5,000 rubles a week. He moves in with a middle class family and his job is to be a "listener". While the job sounds like a dream, the reality is a nightmare. Basically, Petrov’s job is to absorb all the family’s frustrations and anger, and in this function, the family can communicate with each pleasantly and rationally while Petrov absorbs all the domestic unpleasantness.
