The film by itself is just good, but the beautiful music makes it a masterpiece
22 November 2003 | by (Zanzibar) – See all my reviews

The film is very melodramatic and even tragic. It would become another firm Russian movie, just FIRM, if.. if there were no music written by Russian/Soviet melodic genius Alexey Rybnikov. The music for "Vam I Ne Snilos" has happened to be one of his top achievements. People usually watch this film either with tears on their eyes or at least with a huge lump coming to their throat. The main theme song "The Last Poem" written over lyrics by Rabindranat Tagor and performed by Irina Otieva, is just tremendous! Alexey Rybnikov is a favourite apprentice of the great Russian composer Aram Khachaturyan. He is well-known also as the author of the first Soviet rock-opera "Juno and Avos". As a film composer he's written soundtracks to over than a 100 films, most of which are bearing the same "cosmic" feel as music for "Vam I Ne Snilos". Due to the soundtrack I give this film a solid 9 outta 10. And of course I must admit the excellent actor jobs of Nikita Mikhaylovsky and Tatyana Aksyuta, as well as of other decent actors starring here.
