      Audience Member Rosyjskie kino moralnego niepokoju.Konflikt idei z Š1/4yciem prywatnym.Z dzisiejszej perspektywy obustronna poraŠ1/4ka. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Russian "The Right Stuff" depicting life of early cosmonauts in Khazakstan leading up to Yuri Gagarin's first flight into space. Living conditions are atrocious, safety is threadbare. Typical Russian movie - bleak, weird and depressing but still holds interest. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member un film qui reproduit sans doute bien l'atmosphère de la conquête russe de l'espace en 1961. Des pilotes stressés mais tendus vers l'objectif, des conditions difficiles, des médecins et du personnel investis d'une mission à laquelle ils veulent absolument croire... Dania est tiraillé et dérive vers la folie, en rythme avec le compte à rebours. Un film assez dur, assez humain au fond, peut-être assez désabusé quant à un futur qui devait, forcément, être amélioré. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Each year I go to the film festival knowing that somewhere amongst my tickets there is evil. Lurking among them, perhaps hiding under a compelling review, lurks this years 'Death of Mr Lazarescu'. A movie that isn't just dull, isn't just annoying, but acutally makes me want to harm myself. And 'Paper Soldier' was it for this year. On one hand, I am gravely disapointed that what sounded like a fascinating movie about the political aspects of the early Russian space programme turned out to be a pointless and inexplicable movie about some guy, his fiance (who asks if she can be his dog), his wife (who is happy to perform tricks that the dog does) and his boring, pointless friends, all of whom seem to love nothing more than standing around in the snow for no apparent reason. On the other hand, I am glad that it is out of the way and I can enjoy my remaining week of movies without fear. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member some very creative cinematography and staging Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
