Brilliant acting, tragic and comical simultaneously
sunlion from Riga, Latvia
12 February 2004
Sensitive, fantasmagorycal, talented rendering of Bulgakovs play "The Run",
it has that Soviet film quality - when you watch, you forget that it`s
The film is about a group of people who in other times wouldn't have
anything in common, some of them innocent bystanders, some moral criminals.
But nothing is straightforward and simple. From Russia "the run" continues
to Constantinopole, to Paris, back to Russia. Some of them have understood
that they can`t live outside Russia and go back maybe to be happy, maybe
not, some go back to face sure death for their crimes, some don`t go back
and know that are going to miss homeland forever, some are comfortably well
off (are they?) in exile. Sentimental without syrup, tragic and comical at
the same time.
It`s Bulgakov ! What else should be said ?
