Just watched it : piter fm
30 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

The trailers give a very clear idea of what the film is going to be about. And so did the very first scenes of the film. It is about triggered love. Clear, yet I am still curious - in such issues as this, it is the process not the result that attracts us...

...

So, I just watched it. Indeed, the trailer reflected the style and story well.

True, logical development of an attachment. What also it is about? Also it is about internal freedom. Being loyal to your own self. Meeting of these 2 people, or rather their being aware of each other existence triggers changes in their life-long decisions. She decides to cancel her marriage. He - to stay in the city. Why? They both are not sure yet but unquestionably feel much better about their choices. By the end of the film they finally find a way to meet each other...

Even though the ideas of the film are not really new, the story presentation, people, scenery, white nights of St. Petersburg, great music choice - all come together and play off very well making this film a very fresh, freeing endeavour.
