A very refreshing first rate drama
14 May 2003 | by ciaron_ohalloran3See all my reviews

First of all i thought the first guy who reviewed this movie was spot on. I was also glad to see someone else who has actually seen this film. I was suprised it was on this site. If for some reason you get to this review i would recommend this film highly especially for lovers of a good drama.

The films central character Vasili Shukshin (also the director) is a very intriguing, facinating character. The story is also very well constructed with interesting idea's. This film seems to come straight from the heart without all the cheap twists and turns that often seem to be used just to sell a film to the distributor's. Watch it and you will be rewarded. (A mature mind may be required to enjoy this film). One of my favorite films!
