Kira Muratova is still in the loop
20 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen Kira Muratova's movies for a while, but I can say after watching "Nastroyshchik": she is the most controversial director ever... For benefit of others: Kira Muratova is a famous Soviet/Russian film director, her movies were not allowed for public view a long time until Gorbachev/"Perestroyka" took over the Soviet Union. Most of her movies (maybe all of them?)were shot in Ukraine (Odessa).You may feel like you are watching the documentary. This movie is done with true Muratova's style, much different than common film directing. I think Muratova has a lot in common with Woody Allen I'm recommending the people who are Woody Allen fans or simply like non- Hollywood movies to watch this piece. (Sorry for English, it is not my prime language)
