boring but thoughtful
28 October 2008 | by jpastukasSee all my reviews

It would have been a respectable representation of the modern Russian political and social reality under Vladimir Putin if it would not be so boring and repetitive. There have been several places where you could feel having seen the same over and over again. The same ideas and suggestions offered to the viewer repeatedly have made an impression of overly extended presentation. Sometimes it seemed that the film could have been at least 3 times shorter as it was. On the other hand, an ignorant or interested viewer is able to make a well grounded view of the present peoples' feelings in the yet revived Russian 'derzhava'. People simply are so obsessed about the formula about the never-failing "tzar the father" e.g. the president.
