Incredible film about wild Russia
12 March 2012 | by alexander-260-739309See all my reviews

It's the best and incredible film about wild Russia. All scenes about hard life in taiga. I'm under the impression.

The old grandfather and his grandson live in the wild wilderness. Wild dogs have eaten all the animals in the nearby woods. Grandfather is lame and can not go far to hunt. Wild dogs ate their goats, they have no food. His grandson is waiting for his father. Sometimes they were visiting by uncle and brings food, because of the drunkenness and sloppiness uncle once was lost in the forest. The grandson had quarreled with his grandfather, fled, and fell into the pit. To get him out of the pit grandfather needs help and he goes through the wild forest to the people.

This film is about what it means to be human. This film about the hard life in which there is a place not only care about survival, but also mutual.

This is a complicated film, it makes you wonder about the meaning of life.
