One of the best thrillers made in Soviet Union
27 April 2005 | by qkowlewSee all my reviews

In the aesthetic sphere, this film may be compared with 'Dersu Uzala', great masterpiece of Akira Kurosava. You may even see some trivial parallelism in story lines of these two films.

If we talk about psychological and emotional aspect, we may compare it with Hitchcock's movies.

I've got great suspense from this film. Horror is growing from episode to episode. Far cry take your heart by cold fingers. Steps on the ground. Steps on rocks... You don't see danger until it close enough. You are not sure you see what you get.

Nature is full of power. You are small in comparison with it. You are great to choose right way through it. You are happy to return home after all.
