Well, the only reason why I'm commenting on this movie is because I've noticed prior comment from Philadelphia that blamed the movie for the chain of unconnected events - first, it's not quite true - those events were all connected by it was done artfully, not directly: like the one I remember well: a girl riding on the bus looks out of the window and exchanges looks with a handsome guy in the Mercedes, they look like they're created for each other or something close, it was very romantic scene even though it lasted a minute; then camera follows the car and a couple minutes later the car and all people in it pierced with hundred bullets coming from a group of killers, then camera follows killers, etc. I found it to be a very creative way of showing wide picture of life in modern Russia, different layers, different people, etc. BTW, the movie was nominated a couple of times and actually won some awards. Recommend to all open-minded people.
