You should watch this movie if you are sick of watching only popular films
17 October 2019 | by silaonaltSee all my reviews

I've watched this film today in Istanbul Russian Movies Week and it was amazing. It almost made me cry in the end. It was a new perspective for me because I didn't know much about Russian 90s. The camera angles and acting impressed me. Also this story is based on a true story if you didn't know. My advice is you to watch this film if you ever have a chance.
