    Haha. What a stupid, stupid movie. So poorly acted and sloppily plotted. The ending is exceptionally ludicrous. And yet, it’s just so much fun. An odd mixture of retrograde and surprisingly enlightened ideals. They don’t make movies like this anymore, and mostly that’s a very good thing. But I’m glad they made this one!

    A marvelously gorgeous film that also managed to expose me to a new perspective on this period in the history of the Soviet Union. Unbelievably well made and impressive, I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes looking at incredible things.
