Beautiful and melancholic pre-road movie
30 October 2004 | by serge-fenenkoSee all my reviews

Oblako-raj stops where an average road movie starts - at the departure of the main hero. Kolya is so bored by his life in the suburbs of a large city that he announces his departure to Siberia. Actually he does not want to leave and is really afraid to make such a big step in his life. But after everybody in his direct environment welcomes his decision and sees him as a local hero, Kolya has no choice - he has to go…

Oblako-raj is a beautiful film about ordinary people, meant as a comedy and showing how many beautiful moments we experience in our everyday lives. And that it's much easier to stay than to leave for a new life. I loved the melancholic and very poetic ending and the title song.
