What are people saying?

  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Formula of Love

    Interesting, broad, absurdist comedy style (much like Zakharov's other film "An Ordinary Miracle") based on Tolstoy's Cagliostro. The swift, hyperactive absurdist style does mean we never really get to know any of the characters except Cagliostro himself, which makes it very hard to relate to them on any level. I would have preferred a little less hyperactivity, and a little more character depth.
