What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Dream of Russia

    4.5. Director Jun'ya Sato was the go-to guy for international co-productions: couple of Japan-China co-productions, couple of Japan-Soviet co-productions, and even one in pre-revolution Iran. This lavish - and by the looks of it quite expensive - historical film, based on a book by the great Japanese writer Yasushi Inoue (another of whose novels, Tan-huan, was filmed by Sato in western China), is quite remarkable.
