Had I known anything about the movie, I'd probably agree to see it for free, but I wouldn't pay money. And that's just because I like to see Mosfilm's work. The film is a series of unconnected scenes, I imagine to show how all our lives are connected. But in the end, everyone in the theatre said to themselves, "Is this the end?" We were waiting for that final moment when everything would fall into place. It never came. Certain scenes in Kazakhstan (or somewhere in Central Asia) seem completely out of place for this film. They were best left out.
Other filmgoers this day said they would have seen it just for the scenes of Russia. If you've seen Russia already then you can pass on this one.
