Some fantastic history about Russia
14 January 2017 | by ofialkoSee all my reviews

This is the very good and precise screen adaptation (especially taking into account that it is made not by Russian team) of the great Russian book "Chapayev and Emptiness" by famous modern Russian writer Victor Pelevin, published in 1996. It is a fantastic story about a guy named Pyotr who is a poet and in his dreams takes part in two Russian revolutions at the same time: 1917 and 1991, and his romantic story with a girl Anna. Chapayev was a real Soviet army commander. The depiction of Russia is very true. The story has a lot of interesting philosophic ideas and conclusions. Recommended for the art-house lovers.
