Brilliant acting, tragic and comical simultaneously

9/10
Author: 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 acting.

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 ?
