Pretty Russian cast, weak script - still very watchable though
A teen thriller to enjoy your late Halloween celebrations. What brings genius to the simple plot of friendship and love being celebrated on New Year's Eve is the length of time the script holds the audience's attention throughout the entire film with much of it taking place in a gondola.
Creative dream sequences, aerial cinematography and scenescapes of the Russian mountain ranges are tactfully used to build suspense and propel the story between the friends who inevitably begin turning on one another.
The characters aren't developed enough for us to genuinely connect with them as they slowly begin turning on one another. The rapid descend into madness by some of the characters is a little hard to swallow with extreme measures being taken that barely make sense
