Great modern Russian cinematography...
21 November 2006 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This film touched me when i watched at a movie theater mostly as the last film of the young director Sergei Bodrov Jr. The story of a possible kidnapping of a child is common but you feel weird watching this film, you consider the power of money is above the human souls, bodies and lives in the birth of a new nation from its ashes... It was very melancholic to notice that S. B. Jr. is dead and SYOSTRY was his first and last movie. For this man and his dream to show us the new "corrupted" face of Russia the jobbery and the "corrosion" comparing with old "pure" and bureaucratic face of USSR, this is like an ode to life and death. He seems to fight the mobs inside the "story" even if the happy end became really "deadly" to this young cinematic "poet" through the strong family relations between two sisters, the "old Russia" and the "new Russia"... the Russia of Capital and the modern gangsters...

Music of the film was lyric, melodic and full of different emotions with sadness being the top as Victor Tsoy is dead too, as much many realistic things happened we felt spooky and chill more about the young children or adults "victims" of "mobs".

This is a must to see if you love Russian cinema, old or new, and i am sure that you will be touched very much. The
