Very intelligent and original drama.
2 December 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

This film gives us a bright description of a kind of character that does everything to be the winner in the career. The main character steals his professor's writings and uses them to become a professor, saying that the scientific discovery was made by him. But reality rejects his plan. The main character is shown stressed and upset, although he is married and reached the aim of his life. The film has bad ending (the death of the scientist, who fell down from his balcony). This film shows very high and honest attitude of soviet science towards the author's rights. In addition to moral qualities this story has some mystic details, that come across an African fetish, that also could cause the death of the main character. I would recommend this film for everybody who like good soviet detectives, itallian giallos and good psycho thrillers.
