Storyline

"Notes From The New World" is a contemporary retelling of Dostoyevsky's novella which unfolds in Los Angeles where dreams and harsh realities collide. It is a place where almost everyone spies on everyone else, and everyone seems to be playing a dangerous game. Steven is torn between the loves of two women, each of them pretending to be somebody else. The danger only intensifies when Steven comes face to face with the Russian Mafia. Soon he will discover who he really is. On another level the story suggests an amazing reading of the state of the post modern/post communist world. Are we witnessing certain realization of Dostoyevsky's prophecies - especially as far as the Underground Man's dilemma regarding Love/Terrorism is concerned?.. Written by Vitaly Sumin

Impressive.
18 March 2015 | by dri-martins01See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch ''Notes '' (private screening) and I was really impressed.Honestly, there is a lot of our society that can be seen in this movie. It shows how people can be really alike in spite of their differences. It also helps to realize that the world has not changed that much.It reveals the deep feelings that we all hide. It shows the power of choice in life, and how it is hard to be who we want to be when the past is all we know. I really enjoyed this movie, because I could relate to what we see in society, and how opposite worlds meet each other.It has opened my perspective. It has helped me to see beyond the surface, and the often judgements we see everyday. After all, regarding our professions we are just humans trying to find our own place in this world.
