Altho i do read russian i cannot follow it spoken at that speed
anyway found a sub in SPA I could follow well there is also one on opensubtitles in ENG but it is way off
it is tacky in parts and feels like a 1940s tale to Western eyes but it gets stronger as it develops. In many ways it is an ageless storyline. In the end you are left thinking it is a Girl-Power tale and a pretty good one too. Few actors. Petersburg looks stunning in that film throughout the season and one could add it as a significant player here .... philosophical and deep in the end ... so Russian .... main actress is ochin' krassivaya indeed.
