This is one of the best films I've ever seen
23 July 2001 | by (Arnhem(Netherlands)) – See all my reviews

For someone who knows about Sovjet Union history and a lit bit about Russian culture then this film will be understandable. Actually everyone who wants to know about russian culture then I'll recommend to see this film. And not to forget in this film you can see the best actors of russian/Sovjet Union history.
