The first few minutes of the movie was quite dragging and boring to watch but as the conversations heighten and truth and facts are revealed, the viewers become transfixed. There are scenes that are emotional and the scene where the ex-wife was reading the old letters of the ex-husband was so moving. The old pictures of the family elicits feelings of regret and sadness and all in all the movie succeeded in conveying the issues of a relationship that went awry, of parental concerns for a son who's becoming hard to handle and the non-closure of a relationship, with both parties having emotional baggages haunting them. An engaging film by Director Nikita Mikhalkov.

I'm amazed at some techniques that Director Mikhalkov used in this film. That scene where ex-couple was having a confrontation there suddenly was defeaning background noise, like a train passing by. And the panning scenes amongst utensils in a close up manner heightens anticipation. There are also scenes where the lights go off and a sort of spotlight was focused on either the man or woman.  There is genuine uniqueness in the film that, when given more thought of, comprises fragments of one encompassing message. Do check out this film.

  • Watching the film was like being in a theater and there's interesting musical scoring that adds to the mood and impact of a scene.
