For about a year the movie held the title of the most expensive Russian movie ever made, which previously belonged to Nikita Mikhalkov's movie The Barber of Siberia (1998) for more than a decade. In 2010 the budget of Obitaemyy ostrov was beaten by that of another movie by Mikhalkov, Burnt by the Sun 2 (2010). See more »

There are many beautiful layers in this movie. But what really fascinated me, was the figure of Maxim. This unification of messiah-like and yet very human and gentle features, this melting together of a hot-shot and yet modest, sensitive and yet strong, boy-like and yet wise person was really adorable to experience. The first scene really made me doubt if I would like this person, but in the end I was completely on his side.
The story follows an interesting plot and has some nice twists, the world is believable although it shines through as an allegory. I was more than pleased with it.
Some acting could have been better, yes. The directing has its flaws, yes. But it really didn't bother me too much. This movie was a very positive surprise for me, and I can't wait to see Maxim in action again. Well done!
