User Reviews

improbable events, realistic characters
7 November 1998 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

To enjoy you must not only know Russian well, but the reality of the USSR in late 70s. The plot is driven by highly unlikely events. However, the two principal characters are believable and recognizable, their irrational actions motivated, the dialog and expressions are trend setting, the actors at their best.
