This movie is very redicules at first time seeing it, especially the first half of the movie, later its going a little bit boring but all in all a good movie I give him 7 of 10 points. Its a typical perestroika-movie. The first perestroika movies were in 1986 like w strelyajushej glushi or posledniy reportazh, but this movie is one of the first perestroika-movies, too. The story is interesting, which shows a new generation of russian movies, which were mid-late80's til mid 90's.
