Russian cinematography at its best
23 February 2006 | by (Kyrgyzstan) – See all my reviews

This is a must see for every one, who enjoys beautiful cinematography in combination with winning actor performances, and masterful plot with unexpected turns and twists. It makes you cry, it makes you laugh, it makes you envy what is on the screen - it makes you feel. "Garpastum" is a film Hollywood would never have the guts nor brains to make, ever. It is not even European cinema. It is a film that has a vast niche of its own that stayed abandoned for a long time - a niche that was first created by Russian geniuses of cinematography such as Fromm and Tarkovskiy. It's Russian cinema and it comes just in time to save Russia's fall from grace with its 'Nochnoy Dozor' and the likes that follow in the steps of Hollywood. Turn back, turn back from that path before it's too late! "Garpastum" makes that turn.

Russian cinematography's triumphant return! 10/10
