2 June 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

touching, powerful, useful. words about a film who reflects the passion of its director/lead actor for a play about a sort of love , life in a small town, desires, ambitions and the seeds of success. a slice of Soviet Union and one of the most remarkable performances of Vladimir Mashkov. because it is the genre of film exploring delicate theme. the need to be yourself and ignore the past, the unconditioned love and the price of success, the small, delicate feelings. and the relation father - son. touching is the realism of a not comfortable story about weakness and antisemitism and life under Communism and in war times. and this did the film special. a profound delicacy and a precise portrait .
