perfect movie for the selected
2 May 2006 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Perfect movie! Unfortunately it doesn't worth watching for those who don't know Russian history, culture and literature at all. It depicts the whole epoch of the State's history just through the story of those young boys, who even don't realize that they live in one of the most important periods of Russian history, because they have their small problems which are more significant for them at the moment. The atmosphere and the spirit of that period are reconstructed with a desirable accuracy in every detail and a kind of a circular character of the movie (it begins and ends with the same scene) adds a feeling of completeness and makes you think on philosophic and historic topics.
