Nice movie
8 March 2006 | by babushkaizpravdySee all my reviews

This movie manages to deliver a mood of the Turgenev's novel, but the director added also his own vision of the Russian life in the 19th century. All elements, all components of successful movie are presented in this work -- scenery based on literary classics,nice cinematography, excellent direction, beautiful performance by all actors, unforgettable music, and amazing Russian landscapes. This is one of those movie which i like to watch again and again, and every time i will find something new, something that will touch my soul. It is a clever movie made with sincere love of Russia. What i would like to emphasize particularly is the nice women shot in this movie, beautiful actresses -- Irina Kupchenko and Beata Tyshkevitch, one can easily fall in love with, as it happened to the director, as i know from his reminiscences. i give 9,5 of 10 to this masterpiece, the excellent exemplary of how classics has to be brought to screen
