Goofs

When Arkady's car stalls on the bridge on the way back to Moscow, the wipers are still running. As Arkady repeatedly tries to re-start the car, we see the wipers still running at full speed. In real life, each time he tried to restart the car, the wipers would slow from the drain of battery power away from the wipers to the starter motor. See more »

If you like mystery dramas give this one a try.
31 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
