nude girls is the only honour
22 February 2010 | by spyonkaSee all my reviews

I want to warn the people who by any means happened to face this movie.

I really regret that I watched it and I will have to get rid of many not-very-pleasant-at-all pictures which got stuck in my mind. I don't understand this urge to show corpses in such details. Maybe that happens because authors didn't have any other tool to influence the level of watcher's adrenalin, but to me it brought only incredible disgusting feeling and I went out from cinema with the clear desire to clean my mind from this watching. And that's not only because of the corpses. I hate speculations on the theme of religion and culture, but when a Russian director does it and in such a shallow way – it's just unbearable. I honestly was trying to find any idea in the story, but unfortunately – didn't manage. Yes, I want to take the responsibility to say that there is no idea there, no philosophy, only the realistic pictures of unrestrained sins and killing.

My vote is not "1" (awful) just because of the beautiful girls running all over the screen. Kinda good advertising for Russian brides.

But I can't recommend this movie to anyone anyway. It poisons the mind. It is consciousness-murderous.
