    Watched a copy with hardcoded English subs (I speak Russian and don't need them). They made the movie unintentionally hilarious at times.

    The use of symbolism isn't new, even in this early movie. But it is done extremely well here to relay the message of the director. Old, new, death, life, endings and beginnings all see themselves shadowed here. Lovely. 7 years 6 months ago
