During the Time of Troubles...
2 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

The story takes place in post-perestroika Russia. With 80-year-old values being destroyed, people are trying to find ways to earn money, to build their future according to the unspeakable cruel laws of the Time of Troubles. They deal with the questions of morality and human principles when they have to make a choice between a life in comfort or a life with pure conscience. Yelena Safonova is very good as always.
