This is an ageless picture because it poses fundamental questions before a viewer. The questions which need to be answered if he wants to be a citizen in the highest sense of the word. The main hero who is an investigator is an example of a man who wants to find out truth notwithstanding the tremendous resist from people surrounding him. These people are united by sin as much as by mutually intertwined interests. Though their main interest is to not allow the investigator to find out truth in order to preserve status quo. For me there is a lot of pessimism in the view of the movie makers in that fact that the main hero practically doesn't meet genuine ally who would be ready to search for the truth till the end. But I'd rather tend to share this pessimistic look particularly in relation to Russian society which is totally conformist.
Actually I'd like to have the same level of integrity which the main hero possesses. Though I am not sure whether it is possible but at least to strive to be like him...
It is never boring for me to watch this movie because of its profound content. And beautiful acting by Oleg Borisov and another actors.
