Foreign film about man honoring traditional death ritual for wife

We saw this slice of life, quirky, thought-provoking, perhaps Russian, film which was set in current times, back in ~2005-2012, about a man & his friend that go on a short journey to an icy coastland area to put his young dead wife’s body out to sea.
The husband has to drink & talk about her intensely during the trip & then is suppose to totally let go & forget that person/not mention them ever again—moving on, according to their traditional ritual.  During this discourse, the friend admits that he was in love with the woman.
On their way back home, the men hook up with two women in a hotel room for sex–all together in the same bed.
Think the men part ways rather awkwardly….
