The movie tells “behind the door” stories of Russian middle class people, the secrets they hide from others. These people have grown up, learnt how to make love and money, but not how to be happy. They are opposed by Ivan, the main character, a scandal photographer, who preaches absolute freedom and portrays people in entirely and the only sincere way – at least that is how he sees it. But is the freedom to be yourself safe? Without knowing the answer to this question each of us is hiding his real “me” as deep as he can, so it becomes the secret, the “Intimate part”.
