Overall a good movie.
3 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

A decent movie made during the collapse of the Soviet Union. The film deals with a girl nicknamed "Avariya" ("Crash" in English) who is anti-social and doesn't get a long with her parents. I was surprised that the movie showed the teenage generation of the late 80's in Russia as metal heads and punks, I believe it was overstated and some what unrealistic. It's quite a nostalgic movie for anyone who grew up in the former Soviet Union during the early 90's, especially due to the lack of street advertisement and because of all the cars are still Russian. The car chase near the end is particularly entertaining because it's so absurd, it's almost comedic as you see the tape sped up at some points to indicate speed, the finale is also hilariously unrealistic but I'll leave it at that. Despite some of the weaker points, I believe the movie is quite dramatic & shocking, the acting is quite good but the fight scenes are again ridiculously fake.
