This is a wonderful movie with a real feel to it. The acting and plot are great. I never saw 12 Angry Men so I can't compare this movie to that one.

"Intensa y exaltada versión del clásico de Reginald Rose. Otro punto de vista, original y novedoso, pero al mismo tiempo fiel a la esencia de los anteriores. Recomendada para los amantes del drama."

"I agree with many of all of the other positive comments made about this movie. Not being a Russian speaking person, the movie was still easy to follow since it closely followed the storyline of 12 Angry Men. What makes this film great however, is that it provides instances of great reflection into weaknesses and strengths of Russian culture, and their internal struggle to overcome the weaknesses."
