The story seems to be a little artificial since the influence of journalistic articles prevail but the acting makes endeavors to be far from everyday life problems. A miraculous recovery of Izvolsky from hard trauma is unconvincing but sympathetic which gives the opportunity to enter into huge mentality of Russian people. The ex-cops have brutal and renumbering influence along all movie and this represents very helpless skill to explain more of the actions of the heroes. Regardless of that we may applause the attempt of Russian cinema to produce responsible and honest films among which "Okhota na izubrya" (2005)takes its place. The verdict: 6/10.
