The best
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story follows a group of people from the country in the east. They lived their lives, regular, gray, everyday existence. Now, one day somebody decided to change the world, to make it better place. So the lives of our group have changed. The morning was still morning, evening was evening but somehow the rest was different. So they had to find a new place to live. They went west, to the place of eternal happiness and beauty. But when they get there, it turned out that the "paradise" was just as gray, dirty, stinky as their world.

So, if you ever had to leave your country looking for better life, just because somebody decided that old is bad and new is good, see this movie! But !! If you live your life just like coca cola commercial - thinking that polar bears play joyfully with seals - I dare you, do not! It is simply The Best movie I ever saw. Acting, screenplay, dialogs - top notch, life itself.
