One of the most eccentric movies I've ever seen
9 July 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I do like this movie.

It's mad and cranky; style of humor is a bit English. Main line and idea was taken from novel by Dostoevsky but this is mostly improvisation not just a movie shot after the book. It's deep philosophical and groovy at the time; you may see this movie like something easy-watching or like a movie that you will think about.

I can also said that this is quite black movie, sometimes it is too spiteful (at least for me). But at the same time this movie is about love.

So I think that this is highly recommended movie for every philosophical person in the world.

And I am giving it clear 10 of 10.
