I can't say anything nice about the director's work, but the scenery, I think, is very smart and interesting. This movie shows us sad realities of 90-s in Russia. It could be better with another director, I think. But, against, the story is good, the actors (especially my favorite I. M. Smoktunovsky)are charming and play their parts really good. The art-director's work was horrible, sorry, but it's true. Abdulov was too passive and bored me in the first part of the film, but in the second he came alive. I. M. Smoktunovsky is GREAT. As usual. He's my favorite Russian actor, He Is The Genius. I recommend you to see "Prestuplenie i nakazanie" - his Porfiry Petrovich is incredible.
