fall of a period
27 August 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

absurd humor, memorable characters, a manuscript and a fight with shadows. a film about a death soul society, gallery of masks and hypocrisy, prisoners of waste of time and victims of need to be only insignificant shadows of existence. a film from East who present not only a deep crisis who can be considered version of Ionesco or Beckett theater but , in fact, it is only cruel-precise image of Soviet Union fall. nothing new because this form of satire is present, as instrument against politic regime, in many films from Communist camp but in this mixture of Ilf and Petrov, Bruno Schultz and Daniil Harms is something different. the secret ingredient - poor manuscript who can broke the large - fragile circle of fake certitudes.
