a story from a summer Soviet scud camp. nothing special. only the search of a teenager to define his feelings. a film like many others from a cinema and a manner to discover reality. touching, subtle, delicate, bitter. but different because, in this case, Romeo and Juliet are far to old recipes as form. but the essence remains the same. a movie who must see. not only for story. but for the precise use of detail.for the fresh air, for the memories about lost personal experiences, for the beauty of images, for the way from an age to another. the play, the dialogs, the title , the chapters are only tools for a splendid film about force and price of love. so, maybe, it is not great. but it is necessary for many of its public as experience. or, only mirror.
