Impressive use of Overlays to introduce the film, underneath with the free cam called out with a great skill and care taken in acquiring those shots. The freecam stayed with that same elegance all the way through the film.

The Russian language added a tone to the film I felt was a greater addition then any mod or scene could have added, and carried the film with a greater emotional tie then I could have assumed it would.

The sound effects where well chosen and had much more of an impact then many other films I have seen, but the camera photo sound that kept recurring I was confused by and found it very distracting.

The music was well, but I believe it is copyright infringement to use the music from a motion picture soundtrack without permission, and I can't imagine you got permission to use the soundtrack from Clint Mansell and the production company that funded and owns that film.

The use of props and the attention you put into making the sets look perfect was well noticed, and shows your true dedication to your works.

I wasn't very drawn into the story, though. It was very, very well written and if the movie had been longer and given time to explain it all it would probably have only been better, but it was a lot of information crammed into a short space of time, and hard to follow with the flashbacks, because they were very mucked up with things I could not quite follow and reading other reviews it seems the same comment was made by others.

It was visually just an epic piece, through and through (though low resolution, but that is forgivable by the fact that we can not all have good computers; my own is quite outdated) and a joy to witness.

I debated for a long time on giving it a five start rating, but the hard to follow flashbacks, over-use of the photograph sound, and the use of the copyrighted songs which makes a little edgy, had me decide to go with four. I am trying hard not to offend you by doing so, because I'd like you to know it is an absolutely stunning movie, I just can't shake the nervousness I have about the aforementioned comments.

I am defiantly interesting in seeing more pictures by you, and look forward to anything else you may bring to the TMO table. You have a great and cunning eye to detail, which I highly respect.

Stunning! That was a great short movie! I enjoyed your filming technique with the engaging interaction between the characters. I cannot believe you squeezed all of that into six minutes.

It's the first Russian movie I've found here and it's great. The story is touching and emotional, the freecam and the flashbacks are as professional as in the real movies. Definitively 5 stars!

Alright I just watched it twice. You had some pretty great stuff going on in the flash backs. Which I think you could have made better but it was still effective. The music fit the movie very well. Though the whole feel of the scenes and background were pretty bland probably because of you're graphics being turned down maybe not. Now you put alot of work into this and I will give you five stars. Good job Matwey.

Hey mate! The first russian film I've seen on TMO so far and it was quiet a nice experience! Good direction combined with very well fitting music and goov voice overs to creat an intense atmosphere, that's what you've done better than most other directors on TMO. Together with that gripping story and the visual effects, this film really is worth a watch!
Only the subtitels are quiet bad, but not to bad, you could understand everything.

Great job! =)
