Movie Reviews

What America needs
Charles W. Rieger | Ft. Myers, Florida | 06/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bering Strait is the freshest thing to come down the "music road" in a long time.The music business can't understand why there is such a slump in the record sales. If they would concentrate on more groups like this one they might find that record sales would rise! This group has more talent than all those Nashville "cookie cutter" entertainers that are currently on the market. This group has more chemistry together than I ever saw in even the Beatles...These kids are a real breath of fresh air...."
"Strait" Talk

"THE BALLAD OF BERING STRAIT documents the struggles of an enterprising group of young country musicians from Russia to break through with American audiences, leading up to the release of their self-titled debut album. Director Nina Gilden Seavey gives us a solid look at the rise of this hard-working band and gives a particular emphasis on the abilities of lead vocalist/guitarist Natasha Borzilova and instrumental virtuoso Ilya Toshinsky. The band's self-titled debut album was one of the best albums to be released in 2003, with "Bearing Straight", a track from that album, coming very close to winning a Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. And after you see THE BALLAD OF BERING STRAIT, you too will see the reason why these young musicians are worth rooting for."

"I love this new DVD documentary about Bering Strait. You guys are such an inspiration too us all! All though im a (Metal & Progressive Rock Music Student) I still love your music. Keep the music flowing. Its nice for a change that good music can come from other countries and not only USA. I hope too see them in Japan!

"I saw this on CMT. I had no idea what it was about when it first came on, but it was so good, that I sat and watched the whole thing without ever changing the channel. It is really good. You would never put Bluegrass and Russia together, but in the documentary they are melded together seamlessly. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in either bluegrass, country music or just likes to watch documentaries."
