When Renko shoots Iamskoy and the public baths, Iamskoy falls backward over the railing. He starts to fall straight down, which would be logical. But the aerial shot shows him landing out in the pool, in the water, several feet from the edge of the pool. He should have landed on the pool deck, not in the water. See more »
This film has stood the test of time and repeat viewings for me. Have watched about 10 times over the past 20 years and each time I am totally engrossed. Excellent crime-mystery drama. The dialog in this movie is as good as any I know. Scenery and the settings make you feel like you are in Russia during winter: bleak and frigid. Performances by Hurt, Marvin, Dennehey, and Bannen are all solid if not outstanding. Some may be put off by English and Americans performers posing as Russians, but don't let the lack of dialect authenticity get in your way of enjoying this gem. For comparison I would rank it with LA Confidential within its genre.
