Exploration of truth
16 April 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A touching film about errors, duty and colors of fear.

Interesting poem about the nooks of reality, the shadows of dreams, the dust of old hours and the ghosts of some gestures.

Exploration of history and its chimeras with the Russian manner to see, describe and show the essence of a sick world at twilight of emotions.

The talks between doctor and the victim of a terrified past are not only a subtle catharsis form or an exploration of truth but exercise to discover the roots of last form of original sin, the taste of truth, the rules of past, the marks of victim's respiration. Not a reflection in old windows but escape of spirit beyond the games of destiny or malicious accident. The characters are reflections of a strange era, specters of ambiguous desires and actors of a mad god. And only propriety, only way to be yourself is memories collection as shadow of a lost soul.

Show of memories, ladder of past, puzzle of facts and illusions, "Tsareubysta" is a very profound and subtle exercise to define the time and its shadows without shadows, masks or regrets.
