Superb acting from Vladimir Vysotsky
14 September 1998 | by (Lierbyen, Norway) – See all my reviews

The film itself is nothing more than a OK detective story, and only the acting of one actor makes it into a great film; as always Vladimir Vysotsky steals the show, and makes the other actors seem just OK. A must see for someone who likes suspense, and great acting.
