A 2014 gem
2 August 2016 | by boris_kolarovSee all my reviews

Ispytanie is one excellent film, that nearly nobody noticed, but deserves more attention.

That said though, this is also a love it or hate in movie. At least I think so.

The biggest think about this Russian film is the lack of dialogue. Fortunately that doesn't weaken the film. The story is interesting. Without words, the characters get more mysterious. The filming set highers up the isolation feel. The soundtrack features great tunes. The actors do an excellent job.

While I've decided to give the film a 10/10 (even if it was a 9/10 Ispytanie would be still worth checking out), somewhere at the middle it kinda dragged and there was some little frustration.

For fans of artistic films this may be a gold mine. People, like me, who can enjoy an American action flick or a movie, many consider ''bad'', as well as non-American film, may also adore it.
