||One of the best movies I've ever seen|
Italian video I found this movie remarkable. I first saw it in Perth Australia at The Luna in Leederville during a Russian film festival. There are some amazing cinemagraphic scenes. The kids emerging from the mist to push the car is stunning. The opening sequences are straight out of Dickens. There is no sentimentality in this film. It is stark but there is also a lot of love and dignity which is suprising considering the plight of the orphans. The character of Natasha is touching and real. The alcoholic manager is exceptionally well played. It is such a shame that the great unwashed of the world prefer American crap that is tied up with a silk ribbon rather than cinema that moves and shakes everything you believe in. A truly great movie for me. Wayne - Prague.

||One of the Best films I've ever seen|
This is one of the best films I've ever seen. The cinematography is superb with many Dickensian scenes. That very special Russian thing that is somewhere between love, duty, survival, pragmatism etc is all captured. There are no compromises in this movie. The ending is European not Hollywood - YOU write the bit about 'what happens next?' Excellent. Stayed with me years after I saw it. How many films can you say that about?
