Movie Reviews

Teetering on the brink
Jean L. Kloth | Greenville, MS United States | 10/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I give this movie five stars even though the ending is contrived Soviet hogwash.
But up until the last few minutes...it's wonderful.
The characters are members of a film crew trying to hide from the Revolution in the resort towns of the Crimea. But of course they can't hide from history, and they know it. So they live through this last summer, already nostalgic for a present that is slipping away. Their love for what they are losing is overwhelming.
THis was the first video I ever bought - I'm glad to see that it is out in DVD. It is beautifully filmed and acted and full of a wonderful bittersweet quality that anyone who has ever lived through a happy day and seen it end can identify with."
