With each new step, he is meeting new people, but the past is hard to escape. Written by
Written and directed by young Anna Melikian, this movie has one huge disadvantage. Somewhere in the middle it is loosing it's mystique and charmed atmosphere and becomes just your average movie about human relationship. The end is seems to be taken from numerous movies about small towns in the middle of nowhere. However, the plot itself is not that bad and cinematographers also did make really good job, so if you have spare time and have nothing to do AT ALL, than it worth watching, however I would suggest something different. As for actors, they didn't impress me that much that I remembered anything in particular. It can be grade as average, but with original plot.
