Panfilov goes Hollywood
21 July 2002 | by raphalSee all my reviews

This is by no means a bad movie, but the strength that could be found in Panfilov's previous work is hidden here under unoriginal layers of hollywoodian filmmaking. Inna Churikova's character is beautiful: the evolution gives her room to show her talent, in a very dramatic manner. The book is very dramatic in the first place, but in a way that push the movie towards the flashy. Overall, I found that the film lacks subtlety and complexity.
