Understanding Russia and it's new generation...
The first of all-I'm Russian.First time I watched this film was in autumn 2003 in US.It's been about half of the year since I was in US and the film "In movement"(V dvizhenii) has made a huge impact on me.Beautifully created work what accurately translated real life challenges and questions to the screen tongue.The film actually was produced in the time then nationwide movie theater system in the Russia even did not't exist.It was no preproduction or any kind of commercial activity nationwide,it's a pity. The plot basically reflects nation's new generation life,hope,love-all the things what was very common four-five years ago.The main character lives his life today,not tomorrow.He makes mistakes,he is not perfect,but he is alive.All of the feelings which are human kind go thru his performance.He's got a wife,beautiful,which loves him-but he is open for new relationships and affairs.Easily he sleeps with another woman,commits adventure steps,tries to find a truth,fights for his opinions,without any questions helps others.He has an assistant-a female.He's got a friend from University youth,which he so happy to see after so many years apart and which he betrayed having sex with friend's wife. He's got people and faces who actually his life are.He is trying to find his happiness living his life and not thinking about this happiness-because his real life is a happiness.He is thinking,breathing,working and American style of sweet happiness only with his wife is unacceptable. Political lines helps the plot and a film to be very accurate about true Moscow reality in those days.New world came to Russia after Soviet Union collapsed and this world has brought young generation specific challenges and reality's. The main idea is the questionable life with it surprises and moments.Beautiful and meaningful presence of Oksana Akinshina (Anya) gives Alexander Guriev's character hope and simple truth-she is a kind of woman which stays out of global changes in the country and remain her love and maybe normality.From the beginning as a cheerful and delightful story of life of modern Russian journalist this film takes us to the point there we are ask ourselves what happened with us and the country. The film was beautifully shouted and performed by talented crew. Special thanks to the composer for deep and profound music which hard to forget. And the final scene on the train with Anya and Guriev is excellent and touchable-Guriev sees Anya on the train stop and recognize her.Train moving and he is asking her: Guriev.-Stop.Where you are going?(She remain seating on a horse) Anya.-It is not me,it's you. Guriev running to the exit,she still remain seating on a horse,camera shoots thru windows showing us beauty of Russian autumn,life and this generation,young generation which is seeking for answers and rest but will never find it because changes in the country changed this generation and did not leave choices.That's why this generation of young Russians live right now across the world and in Russia itself and after centuries of Russian history this generation actually for the first time free and this difficult burden of freedom and chances to create a new life and reality makes us and main character Guriev be always "In movement"... Watch this film and enjoy sensational,fresh,intelligent and delectable piece of Art and piece of amazing and sad country Russia. And the special thank you to the Russian Language in this movie-I wish I could post my comment here written in a language with all adjectives and nuances and beautiful constructions which my Mom use to sing me and which makes me Russian then I speak it.
