Great psychological drama
19 June 2012 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Story takes place in late 70's, just in 3-4 locations which brings up a theatrical stage feel and it's simple - scenario is based on Alexander Vampylov's theatrical play "Duck Hunting". Movie is dated 1979 however it was banned until late 80's because of a Soviet censorship which found in this movie something inappropriate and it's hard to say what. Great story and great cast do their job perfectly - this is a dramatic and disturbing movie about desperate man (played by Oleg Dahl), who devastates himself and world around him in some specific way which only Russian authors can describe. He's pretty cynical and has a good sense of humor (as well as his friends), he drinks a lot, he thinks a lot (but it's hard to get his point). If you like movies of Woody Allen, Noah Baumbach or, for example, Scandinavian or German directors, and many others who create that kind of a "personal drama" and you can live with all that Soviet era set-up for 2 hours - it'll be a great time with no doubt.
