Love is not a feeling but a caring act amongst this (ever-expanding) group of friends. Everything unfolds in a matter-of-fact way to a few ever-repeating tracks that unify the (what seems to be a) three-act play. Plus Renata Litvinova's (Tata) uncanny resembles to Dalida, the film ends but being both a social portrait and a tribute to unsung beauty.
After having seen "Brother", "Of Freaks and Men" and "morphia" found this humanist little tale somewhat surprising. Balabanov directs this small character driven piece with a restraint I didn't know he possessed. An interesting journey amongst a group of friends trying to get their business off the ground while navigating life's challenges. Other than the abrupt ending found the film worth watching.
