7 August 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is a nice film. for its image, acting, intentions of writer/director. but it is a product for Westestn public. that is only sin. it is necessary to present the tragedies of East Europe and the long pain of Soviet space. but , in same measure, it is not easy to create the perfect image of system. the film has not chance to convince. and the cause , I supposed, it is the distance between director and the story. it sounds strange but the team does a good work. an admirable, touching reconstruction of an universe. the basis is a real case. but it is not enough. a special ingredient is missing. maybe, only for Eastern viewer who knows little more than the clear , honest testimony of this movie.
