One of the best films of all time!
31 August 2004 | by (Richmond, California) – See all my reviews

The director received funding for a 10-minute film and used those miniscule funds to make the most spirited film ever made (in my opinion), an extremely moving piece about two children in Siberia. The film is loose-as-a-goose -- there's never been a movie as "un-rigid" as this. In my mind it's a bookend to another film about children, the Spanish film "Spirit of the Beehive." But where that film's depth is in its poetry and mystery, this film's depth is in its emotions and sheer good-fellowship. They're opposites. Except that, to me, there's never been two better films. Why hasn't Kanevsky's second film, "An Independent Life," been released in the U.S.? Why has the second film of Victor Erice (the Spanish director), "The South," been virtually unseen in the U.S.? (It's as good as "Spirit of the Beehive.") I tell you... seeing those films will spoil you for nearly every other film!
