I had read Chapayev and Void in the original a few years ago and it's one of my favorite books so far. I was really excited to start watching this movie. However, all I can say after it is that the Buddha's Little Finger is truly weak attempt to depict all the depth of the novel's gist and interestingness of the narrative move.

If we put the content of the Pelevin's novel aside and try to evaluate the movie plot as the independent story, it still remains infirm. All you can find there is simplified scenes content and dim relation between presented parts of the story.

2/10. Period.
