    A masterpiece! The cinematography and the hand-held camera work is nothing short of brilliant. 10/10 9 years 1 month ago

    Tells the story of diamond-seeking adventurers in Siberia.
    Didn't like it too much.
    Felt like the director was trying to shoot a glorious masterpiece, but felt short of it.
    The photography is very beautiful though, and Tatiana Samoilova's beauty is fascinating, just like in "The Cranes are Flying".
    I think what I disliked the most was the music.
    And this idea of guys looking for diamonds for the sake of making the USSR richer is a bit blah blah to me.
