I watched this masterpiece first time before 10 years and I was stunned. Now, I watched it before few days again and I am really surprised how this remarkable movie functions and become better and better. It is really ingenious portrait of human interaction and cooperation, great "prison-escape" drama that bring us unique way of telling story (in long shots) looking so realistic and powerful.
One of the best movies I've ever seen!
