revival as it really is, highly recommendable
26 February 2013 | by (Russia) – See all my reviews

This movie is bound to has a deep psychological impact on any watcher. But what provokes the empathy is different from what you can think of. There is no single scene of hysteria which may be typical of films of this kind. In fact, there is nothing that we are used to see when it comes to films raising issues of any kind of deviation. No direct repulsive scenes of violation or abuse. The story is told from the inside, when in fact, the main character hardly says someone a word about her experience. However, the film is well-thought-out, so it's perfectly possible for watchers into the characters. The ways of transmitting emotions throughout the movie are so sophisticated that after watching it one may well be left with a feeling that the story happened to her but she managed so wheel in overcoming it, that she didn't even remember before reminded. Actors in the movie did their job excellently and I especially liked the close attention that was paid to gestures in the movie. While it's certainly a story of revival which is very powerful, it's not a story of a hero. It's just another story of another human being. A very real story. I rated the movie 8 our of 10 because of the job of the team, great attention paid to details, to atmosphere and the fact that they avoided making the story either inspiring or desperate.
