    So basically Kiyoshi has exposed us again. Deep psychology cinema work from the master, pretty convincing to get disappointed in humanity... I have to big up the novelist Kanae Minato as well, I've never read it, but it is most likely she was writing about the topic that Kiyoshi can handle like a true professional in a video format, so when I say "Kiyoshi", no doubt I also put some respect on her name.

    I must say I really hated…

    There should be a remake for this film because this is somewhat old and not very stylish, but the idea is just so perfect for a psychological drama focusing on crowd psychology.

    Everything here calls for a remake. This film is not bad though.

    7.5/10

    A unique piece of art, I have never seen anything similar, the idea of the repeating sequence seems like a silly idea first but as it goes further it leads to a terrific experience that is open to numerous interpretations.

    One of the most interesting films I've seen so far.

    What an amusing satire of bureaucracy! Although for a film like this the translation is very important, hence I'm afraid that some typically Soviet official eloquence might get lost in English translation, so God knows if the quality is on point in English. The film is in Georgian, but Russian translation is funny and feels like an original.

    Pretty much the light comedy version of "The Fool" by Yuri Bykov.
