[An] extraordinary kaleidoscope of a film...

Part of the film's message is that we are all exiles -- banished, Housman-like, from the country of our past.

Room and a Half offers an inventive and intimate portrait both of a great artist and of the post-Second World War cultural world of the Soviet Union.

True, [its] hustle and bustle sometimes feels like too much to take in at once, yet its heavy payload of literary quotations, philosophical argument and classical music is also perhaps an act of faith in an intelligent audience.

The life of Joseph Brodsky, poet, memoirist, Nobel laureate, is reimagined in a two-hour intertwining of drama, animation and mock documentary.

without Khrzhanovskiy's artful vitality, Brodsky's life, at the very least, would have looked a dreadful bore and A Room and a Half wouldn't be half as wise or entertaining as it is.

Khrzhanovsky's tone is too whimsical at times, and his points about repression too leaden, but that often happens when a cartoonist dabbles in live-action. Anyway, Khrzhanovsky's approach improves the material far more than it hinders.

A fanciful and melancholy portrait of exiled Russian poet Joseph Brodsky.

A lively, dense and richly imaginative portrait not only of a great writer but also of the post-Second World War cultural world of the Soviet Union.

Director Andrey Khrzhanovsky is one of Russia's slyest animators -- as anarchic as Terry Gilliam was in his Python prime.

The antithesis of the stiff, plodding biopic, A Room and a Half is the most persuasive film about a writer and his formative world since Before Night Falls.
