One of the best documentary films
20 November 2000 | by (Moscow, Russia) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's really one of the best documentary film I've ever seen. Five minutes of strange and mindbending actions: crowds of people on the main street of Leningrad after the firework. Sokurov just explored human rampancy. He saw existential tragedy in this pandemoniac festivity.
