and don't forget the humour
I agree with the comments already made on this film; it is beautiful, realistic, gritty, overloaded with sharp humour and a lyrical quality within the imagery of the nostalgic sequences, imagery that is intangibly appealing yet unmistakably evocative. Though this film may at first glance seem unexciting to the action film fan, "Rebro Adama" has more than enough action crammed into a film less than two hours long; the lives of the family are turned upside-down in a short time, and the future for the family becomes raw, unpredictable, as unpredictable as the future of Russia was in 1990. Moreover, I couldn't help but admire the cheeky, almost caustically humorous, tough teenage girl, Nastiya. This is an excellent film I would recommend to those who appreciate dark, realistic humor and unpredictable, independent film story lines that leave no contrived aftertaste. My rating: 8/10.
