Very good movie, but the title should be changed to
15 September 2012 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

"The Naive German Moron In Russia". yes, i'm serious about this and not joking at all. from the very beginning of this movie, i knew it's a very good movie with all the proper casting all over. the young guy, the main character in this movie is such a naive moron who came from Germany to work for a Russian celebrity magazine. but his naivety and his loneliness made him lose his alertness as a foreigner, a stranger in a strange land. he allow his 'little head' doing all the stupid things that he should not do in the first place. this guy made me feel pity on him but at the same time, i think what he later encountered served him right. this is a highly ideological movie, portraying the current situation in Russia. it's also a warning to all the younger people who are interested in politics that passion is a very dangerous thing once government and government policies are involved. like what this German moron said when he was in bed with his newly found love: "it seems that he's doing nothing but protesting." there are indeed so many young guys who actually do nothing but only interested in demonstrations or protests against the reigning government. they think that peoples' power is the weapon against police or military forces. by yelling and screaming, they can achieve what they wanted, but what they got are either prison time or bullets in the head. the first thing that all the politicians in power would do is how to maintain their power and how to suppress the dissidents. this movie would allow you to understand why most Chinese young people would never like to do anything against their Chinese communist run government after Tien-An-Men Square massacre. because passion simply cannot stop a bullet.
