the gratest movie created about Lithuania
7 November 2002 | by pauleliuxSee all my reviews

I have seen a few movies about lithuania, but i think this one is the best. Before watching this film, I thought it would be boring and not interesting, but I was very suprised. The director of this film knows how to do his work and does it excelent. So everyone, who has this movie, is a lucky person :) thank you for your consideration!
