I see people from Russia and former soviet countries are upset because "Siberia is not like that". But this is NOT a documentary, this is a movie telling a story! If you watch the movie and judge it as what it really is, maybe you'll see that it's a beautiful story, and the cast did an excellent job.
I assure you one doesn't come out from the cinema thinking to Siberia as a land of criminals and assassins.
We knew before it's a harsh country, where living conditions are though, so we imagine people must be tougher to survive. What's wrong in using this simple assumption to create a fictitious group of fierce people with its own laws that keep fighting for living in harsh conditions?
And the story itself IS BEAUTIFUL: friendship, love, revenge, from the point of view of people grown up with an unconventional scale of values. But in the end you can ask yourself if you, with your "conventional" education, would have acted the same way or not.
IMHO, among the top 10 in the last few years.
