It happened in the sixties, during the political thaw in the Soviet Union... but our story unfolds in the coldest terrain of the country. It was an unexplored and unbeaten terrain of boundless ice-field and forbidding rocks. This was the proper place for real men and real romantics. Our story is about the geologists prospecting gold in the Extreme North. Written by Anonymous

An Epic Film sitting somewhere between 'Dersu Uzala' and 'War and Peace'
30 October 2015 | by stafbettridgeSee all my reviews

This is a truly epic film both in duration, the depth of it's characters and the scale of it's setting. Russian films are often 'Love' stories dealing with different aspects of Eros, Philios, and Agape; so this is an Epic Love Story, about Geologists surveying Siberia (the Territory) in the Soviet 60's. Just as in 'War and Peace' the lives of many people are followed through tragedy and triumph, and all of these individuals are fleshed out in exquisite detail. We see their flaws and strengths tested under the harshest of conditions, and in a spectacular terrain. There is a 'Dersu Uzala' quality to the film; a native hunter, the force of nature, bonding, testing, love, physical tests, the triumph and failures - it's raw and beautiful.

The Cinematography, apart from a couple of rugged drone shots is just breathtaking, especially on a big screen. Casting, Acting, Locations, Sound, Editing are all superb. What the Director/Writer has achieved with the Script is vast in it's scope, hence I describe the film as an 'Epic' for good reason. The film falters only for moments; once it gets it's rhythm up it becomes totally mesmerizing and as for the ending - well, I loved the ending - it's really well written. This is no Hollywood 'Heroes Journey' film - nobody is a 'Handsome Hero' - all are hard, obsessive, damaged, damned, fragile, beautiful manifestations of humanity. And that's what this film has in spades: Humanity. I give it Nine Stars - I rate it higher than 'Dersu Uzala' which is a film that I love dearly. At two and a half hours you'll need patience and a big screen but it won't disappoint. Extremely Russian. Extremely Poetic and philosophical. A Visual feast. Epic. October 2015.
