slice from a time
9 July 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

not great, not boring, not impressive. few ingredients of Demons by Dostoievski. crumbs from first part of XX Russian century. lines of different love story, revenge and murders as bricks of new world. faces of profound crisis, pieces of faith, need of life sense and fascination of death. a definition of a soul. soul of some men and sacrifice of a woman. a prey of past and ladder of feelings. innocence and waste of emotions, Stolîpin era and seeds of October Revolution. the assassination of Great Duke Sergey Alexandrovich in different form and shadow of strange Ashaverus.a picture in old nuances about profound fight against world as fight against yourself. the angel is far from battle fight. and the innocence is first brick in a large foundation.
