I'm learning German, and that's why I went to see this Russian film. I read in Wikipedia about the story, which I found quite interesting. I'm a regular movie goer, I love all kinds of movies, and I don't believe in movies for selected audiences... I just hate bad movies that come along and try to make you feel like you didn't understand them. This is the worst movie ever, and not the worst movie in its kind, it's like you take all the movies ever made in the history of mankind, well: this is the worst, you can't make a worst movie than this one. It doesn't even fit the screen, it's most of the time out of focus, the script are random words without a meaning, the characters are just there without any reason whatsoever. I really believe the man who made this film should quit, the ones who participated in it, quit along with him. This man should start working in other areas may be cleaning cars or something like this. I hated every minute of this, and the six other people there hated it too. It makes you wanna stab your throat with the straw of your drink, it makes you hate the capability of seeing, it makes you wanna pay your ticket again so they stop the show. This one deserves a vote of -5. Really. Don't do it.
