Trivia

Mosfilm gave the production crew exactly 5400 m of color Kodak stock for the whole movie, therefore parts of the movie and some demanding sequences, like the train robbery, had to be filmed on cheaper black and white stock. See more »

gloomy time, moral lesson
15 July 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a Nikita Mikhalkov. with each of elements who defines his work - humor, heroism, sacrifice, justice, melancholic crumbs. a kind of Eastern on the young Soviet Union construction. but out of political circle. because it is only a story. about duty, trust, friendship and profound truth. and not that bricks are fundamental but the manner to present it. with subtle irony, delicacy and a fine Russian style. a film about justice and a hero with has not ambition to be more than a common man. an interesting performance and few splendid images. and special atmosphere. is it enough ? is it too much ? it is just a pure Mikhalkov movie. ant this fact is only essential.
