Another Russian entry in what is, no doubt, a horrible political climate in which to bring up good Russian films. Still, it’s a solid contender. Think West Side Story meets Escape from New York, and you have the premise of this film. Again, there are many moments of unintentional humor, and certainly, the acting leaves much to be desired. Even the concept is a little hokey, to be brutally honest. However, it’s interesting enough to be worth watching.
