Good movie (in Lithuanian movie making term), 29 October 2011
Author: 851222 from Lithuania

Greetings from Lithuania.

Going to be short here. This is a pretty good movie. Actually this is a very good movie and if you've seen any other movies from Lithuania, you'll know what i mean. The cast is good, and i think all actors did a really good job in this one. And as a lead Mantas Jankavicius, he is OK too. The plot (YES, a film from LT finally has one) is quite good. But the biggest star of this movie is a nature. It is breathtakingly beautiful. It's not "Gladiator" or a "Braveheart", but it's a very well made film, that will leave some audiences wanting for more.

Bravo, tai gali tapti Lietuvisko kino renesansu!!!
