Right film
26 February 2008 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Great movie. It is a film about ours frequently unfair relation to the parents, caused by the different reasons. Among which the various outlooks on life caused by change of epoch, problem of fathers and children. It seems to me, that the main message of a film - to be a grateful to the parents. Under any circumstances as it is written in precepts. Precisely also characters of people from miner's settlement on Donbass are brightly represented, details of their life and atmosphere are transferred. A window platband in a final fragment of a film is such as in the house of my grandmother, in one of the same miner's settlements nearby Donetsk. Impresses realism of scenes in coal mine. Huge gratitude to Vladimir Hotinenko, Nadezhda Kozhushanaya, Sergey Koltakov, Ivan Bortnik, Natal'ya Akimova, other excellent actors and cinematographers for a masterpiece. Final execution of Orthodox's "Nyne otpuschaeshi" is magnificent. The film has awards: The winner of a special prize of jury of the All-Union film festival in Baku (1988, for a film «the Mirror for the hero»). The winner of a prize of name Vittorio de Sica «For direction» on a film festival in Sorrento (1988). Please excuse for mistakes in English language.
