Audience Reviews for Okraina (Outskirts) (Patriots)
Boris Barnet's tale of a small village during World War I is more a series of loosely connected sketches than a straight narrative, and "confused" is the word that comes to mind. The attitudes towards the Germans are not so much complex as they are jumbled and inconsistent. The odd sound design could be interpreted as ironic (or poetic?) commentary but to me it just felt misguided. Furthermore, the rhythms of the film (occasional quick bursts of narrative action alternating with long, slow stretches) make it dreadfully dull for the most part. Still, it contains a handful of lyrical touches here and there and a few of the anecdotes (particularly those that resemble Grand Illusion) are compelling.
