Movie Reviews

A midwintersdawn fantasy
Daniel S. Russell | Blacksburg, VA United States | 02/11/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As a playwright Ostrovsky is the Russian Shakespeare. Here we have something akin to "A Midsummernight's Dream," only with superb Russian folk singing thrown into the mix. Yes, it all can seem very stilted to western audiences, but remember that this is pretty important theater being filmed. Wonderful atmospherics and direction reminiscent of Bergman and Pasolini make this a lot of fun. I just wish the soundtrack were available."

"really beautiful story about really beautiful girl with very sad end. Look it yourself and you'll understand what I want you to tell."
Beautiful and sad...and very Russian
A. Grossman | Florence, Oregon USA | 01/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another gorgeous Russian film - full of beautiful folk music and a breathtaking village set. The story is so famous in Russia that both Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky set it to music. The poor Snow Maiden is a very tragic figure who willingly dies to feel the emotion of love but the coda is quite upbeat. Very Russian."
Very Tragic Yet Facinating Fairy Tale

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It was a beautiful fairy tale. It's about Snegroichka "AKA" Snow Maiden, she goes into the world of humans and her heart is melted by a handsome shepard who can sing opera! And I mean the guy can sing too! But then when a friend of her's is betrothed to another man, her friends fiance falls for Snow Maiden. So can Snow Maiden win the heart of Lel the shepard and get her friend's lustful, annoying fiance off her back? Heck I'm not telling you, you have to watch this movie and see for yourself! Highly reconmended for music, Russian movie lovers and lovers of Russian fairy tales!"
