saw this just by chance on pbs. one of the best films i've seen recently. --Intense and taut with a great performance by one of my favorite actors Emily Watson. How come this has not played in US theaters?

this may come out wrong, but for a film about gulag camps in siberia, this film is too good to be true. great performance by emily watson, as always. but mixing poetry with harsh times is definatelly not everyone's cup of tea. feels very sugar-coated at times.

This movie is well-made, has a very good leading actress, a good soundtrack and it's full of meaning. But it hasn't convinced me too much. The story was just too poor maybe. It's like all the other films that show the shoah. They are sad, they are important because they make you think and remember, but in the end they just push on the feelings topic.
