I haven't expected to see such a wonderful movie before I've pushed play. This is one of the last years Russian's best. I belief everybody must see it. The director made his job excellent. The actors are ideal. The story is filled of absolutely right cinematographic moves. And finally perfectly-made mystery. I've heard so many bad reviews on this movie that I really was prepared to something weak. But probably this one is really that special that seems amazing for the ones and 'nothing really special' for others. And what can I say? Tose others are definitely did not understand this movie. They didn't understand anything, especially ideal directing. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "Glyanets"!!!
