My God, it's just a 10/10!
16 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Green Elephant is a film about human freedom, a cornerstone of its value and invaluable to the individual. Also, dedicated to the highest human qualities: courage, honor, selflessness and male friendship. Movies about possible metamorphoses of human nature in a closed space, total humiliation and hopelessness and just awesome allegory on the Russian army by Svetlana Baskova.

Definitely one of the best Russian movie ever. Want to get unforgettable impression from entertaining dialogs and preposterous picture? Just do it! Anyway, this film doesn't leave anyone indifferent.
