Came very close to opening in neurosurgery, from which depended the salvation of many people, the protagonist of the film (Peter) throws scientific work and his best friend and colleague of the experiment. Went to Sweden. After many years of dissatisfaction compels him to drop everything and go back to Moscow, where he was not welcome and do not take in the scientific community, and the best friend refuses to help, despite the pleas of his wife Petra. Numerous meetings with different people does not help him to find the courage and overcome yourself. He never returned to the once abandoned scientific work. Written by NTKH

Rambling, but eventually effective.
13 January 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Shepitko's THE ASCENT is one of my favourite films, so I was really looking forward to this. It didn't surprise me that it's not as good as the ASCENT (few films are!), but it was only really towards the end that I can say that I really appreciated the film. There is a fractured narrative that at times in intriguing, and, at others, merely feels obscurantist and prone to rather uninteresting diversions. However, there are some excellent scenes throughout the film and overall the film has an attractive character to it, so it's no chore to stay with its ramblings, and, in the end the story comes together in an atmospheric and morally forceful conclusion. Like THE ASCENT, YOU AND ME is blessed by a wonderful score by Schnittke.
