| Absolut brilliant
This is a work of art that is so brilliantly talented, that it is hard to believe that it is possible to capture on film something so perfect. It is a 300 years old play by Lope de Vega who wrote so many that he was called Phoenix of Spain, most of it comedies. The movie is perfect in any way - as a theater transformed onto film, as a musical (music by Gladkov), as a comedy, even as drama.

If this film would be allowed to travel to worlds movie festivals it would come back with a truckload of awards. What is to be said about this film above all the rest - actors, actors, actors ! They are not teenagers picked of the street and artificially pumped into stardom, they are real, genuine, actors, actors by heart and hard work, immensely talented people, seasoned in cinema and theater. Even the surroundings and costumes (which for some reason always interests Westerners so much) are stunning, they are so live, breathing, as if picked out of the authentic paintings. Terehova carries herself in such way, that if Isabella of Portugal herself has stepped down from the painting in her flaming red velvet dress she would look pale and gray. Terehova really IS the great and majestic Diana, it doesn`t have to be accented and hinted by syrupy sounds, blurry shots and all that stuff.

Watch it ! This movie really is seventh ART !
