The term "remake" describes audiovisual productions which faithfully reproduce the plot, characters, atmosphere, and practically all the other features of a previous work. In theory, this new version by Vadim Epstein of the well-known work by Olia Lialina My Boyfriend Came Back From the War could be considered a remake. In the case of certain works for the Internet, simply replacing image files under the same name leads us to a new version of the work.
In the digital world, on the other hand, the subsequent versions of software always offer us an improvement, better quality graphics and improved user-friendliness. Perhaps this is what we see in this mix of parody and homage to a classic work of hypernarration.
