A miraculous beauty
2 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An Ordinary Miracle has really stood out among the run of Russian films I've seen, which was at a very high standard. And I mean this in a very good way. An Ordinary Miracle is a beautiful-looking film, the fantasy settings are wondrous and the scenery like some of the other best of Russian films makes me wish I could go to Russia. The photography is of the kind that is simple but also very elegant. The music is orchestrated sensitively and to the extent that you wish you can buy it on CD alone, the songs also stick in your head for days and are just lovely. There is some satire in the dialogue and it's very sharp and hilarious, and there's a lot of thoughtful and touching moments too. The story made me laugh with the satire, cry or feel very touched with the three romances(very romantic and charming) and in awe with the fantasy elements. It is also swiftly told, I was impressed at how much there was, it's a quite long film but never tiresome. The characters are quirky engage hugely, all of them serving a point. The acting is theatrical but still very good, Oleg Yankovsky and Irina Kupchenko are excellent. Overall, beautiful film and a miracle really. 10/10 Bethany Cox
