I don't agree with summary as it's written
5 December 2009 | by (Ulan-Ude, Russia) – See all my reviews

There are a few points I would like to correct in plot summery. Because it has some factual mistakes. "She does not respond to Kirill Izvekov, and her behavior is hurting his feelings." - She does respond. And it was not her behavior, or his feelings for her that pushed Kirill to the path of revolution. He was quite happy with his love as it is. Origin of his disillusions lays in other things.

"By an unfortunate chance he becomes falsely accused of participation in the popular uprising and spends a year in prison. After that he matures into a professional revolutionary." He was not falsely accused

  • he had really taken part in printing and spreading the proclamations.


And there is nothing about passing sentence on him in the movie. I don't know where from Mr. Steve Shelokhonov took information about 1 year. The final is open to any kind of conclusions. May be he would become a mature professional revolutionary, may be not - because he would die of decease serving his sentence for example.

I liked this movie a lot. The characters are not just schema or propaganda. They look quite vivid. Actors are splendid. A touch of irony and humor highlighted a few scenes. The film doesn't give ready answers. It looks like it is even unfinished. And that is what I liked it for.
