Sophie's Take: Compartment No 6 is about a woman named Laura who plans to go on a trip to see petroglyphs with her girlfriend, who is an anthropology professor. Petroglyphs are ancient drawings on rocks, and anthropology is the study of what makes us human. Laura’s girlfriend cancels on seeing the petroglyphs with her. But Laura really wants to see the petroglyphs so she goes alone. Then when Laura is on the train she meets a Russian miner who appears gruff at first, but he also expresses interest in the petroglyph rocks. Laura’s professor girlfriend does not go to see the rocks. She just talks about the rocks in her lectures. But Laura and the gruff Russian miner go to see the rocks, I agree with this. The petroglyphs in this movie are real petroglyphs that are located in Murmansk which means ‘at the edge of the world’. The meaning of these petroglyphs have yet to be deciphered. Whenever I feel like I am at the edge of the world I like to think about these rocks, the reason why I like them, which is because the meaning of their petroglyphs have yet to be deciphered. There is hope in rocks.
