Quotes

[first lines]
Paul: [lecturing] Most people think of hyenas as cowardly scavengers - waiting around impotently for left overs, while the stronger faster animals eat their fill. They're wrong. There's a lot more to them than that. Look at them.
[indicating video footage]
Paul: Hyenas are fierce hunters. They're all muscle and teeth. Their top speed in about 35 miles an hour.

Better Than You Think
15 September 2014 | by sure_manSee all my reviews

Sveta's character is more interesting than meets the eye, plot notwithstanding. Her attitude towards reality and survival was declared in a few, brief bits of dialogue. One scene where she is beating herself up in Russian, feeling guilty for the death of her partner, comes across as a natural emotional response to a horrible event. The second refers to "civil war" as an irrevocable educational crucible, in not so many words, when she is responding to the kid's question about where she learned to recognize something evil. These bits are profound and convey quite a lot of depth and meaning to a character too easily dismissed by a less insightful viewer.
