Movie Info

Middle-aged zoo worker Natasha still lives with her mother in a small coastal town. As she struggles for independence, she has to endure the absurd reality of her life filled with gossip spread by the women around her. She is stuck and it seems that life has no surprises for her until one day... she grows a tail. Embarrassed at first, Natasha decides to go further with the transformation and use it as an opportunity to redefine herself as a person and as a woman. With the new "accessory" she gets access to the life that she has never experienced before - she starts a relationship with a man, who finds her attractive, she goes out and allows herself to be foolish for the first time in her life. But her second puberty eventually comes to an end and Natasha has to make a choice between reality and illusion

While I would only recommend it to art-house enthusiasts due to its slow pace, it is refreshing to see a film that deals with body image from an older woman's point of view.

[A] combination of fairy-tale wonderment and stark realism propels this enthralling film, which showcases serious acting talent in its lead spot with relative newcomer Natalya Pavlenkova.

Zoology is a thoughtful parable about embracing one's difference instead of turning tail.

...touching, gently whimsical, grotesque and very strange.

Tvedovsky is definitely to be applauded for an audacious, interesting, arresting film - however curious and at times un-persuasive. Long may the spirit of independent visions last. Recommended viewing.

Zoology isn't just about a person who has grown a tail, but a tale of personal growth.
