Family film Russian style.
1 September 2011 | by petesherrattSee all my reviews

This is what is generally called a family film, one that can be watched and enjoyed by all ages. It does this pretty well overall and the two central characters develop nicely over the plot, with Sumrak, a hardened career criminal, learning how to look after children and fall in love (he has been in prison since he was 16 years old), and Koltsov mending a tarnished reputation as a former police officer after being unjustly imprisoned. It is not as sentimental as a western film with a similar plot would have been but it also does not have as many laughs in it as I think there should have been. The acting is fine and the action sequences are well done but ultimately its aim is to tug at the heartstrings.
