The movie format follows the same type of format as Slacker, where the movie jumps from one character to another, dwelling on each for a short period of time, showing some facet of life in Moscow. Also, just like Slacker, all the characters appear to be amateurs, and unfortunately quite often it is painfully apparent. Its pretty bad when a dog in the movie probably provides one of the best performances.
Unlike Slacker, the dialogue is very spare, with many of the characters never even saying a word. The movie is pretty slow and meandering. I like slow movies, but sometimes even this movie tested my patience.
I would agree with the commenter who said that the movie may be of some interest if you are not from Russia. Otherwise, probably not worth your time.
