Absolutely brilliant and provocative. IT IS NOT FOR SIMPLE MINDED!
7 November 2005 | by vlahovSee all my reviews

This movie definitely deserves 10/10. A brilliant piece of pure art. This is an outstanding example of how real movies are being made, especially the low budget ones. I can understand totally the above-mentioned reviewer for not understanding the beauty of it. I am sorry to say but this movie is not for simpleminded rednecks around /if any/. I highly doubt if any viewer not with Russian roots can understand the high satire of Alexey Tolstoi *for simpleminded also - this is NOT Lev Nikolayevich who wrote WAR AND PEACE, he is SF (mostly) author!* This is undoubtedly one of the best in its genre and it is definitely worth looking. I had the tremendous pleasure of buying this gem on DVD in Moscow and have watched it several times since. Greatly recommended!
