    one of the best russian movie of the decade!

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Major

    "La inverosímil tregua entre el agresor y su víctima es el inicio de una serie de situaciones cada vez más banal. La redención, como tema central de la película, es un cosquilleo que se maneja de manera superficial. Lo que pudo haber sido el conflicto interno, moral o hasta sentimental de un mayor de policía, se termina tratando con un razonamiento contradictorio..."

  4. Vlad's rating of the film The Major

    Opening sequence at the accident site would make a decent short.

  6. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The Major

  7. Ali Ercivan's rating of the film The Major

    Good premise, strong conflict, but not that strongly written script, profound as much as an action movie, still very nicely shot and technically terrific... All leads to a decent crime drama.

  8. msmichel's rating of the film The Major

    TIFF '13 Bykov has scripted and directed this Russian look at corruption and complicity in a police force trying to cover up the actions of one of its own after a brutal car accident takes the life of a 7 year old boy. However the point is made that this could happen anywhere and in any walk of life as one's preservation of one's loved ones near always take precedence over the law. Soundtrack is aces.

  9. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Major

    Solid craft here in a tale of corruption and the tangled web that supports it; marred a little by some heavy-handed acting from the mother, who in reality didn't have a lot to work with in sustaining a mix of grief and anger throughout. The film comes full circle poetically enough with the truck-driver's return further strengthening the motif of 'what goes around comes around' or 'it's a very small world'. 3 stars

  10. Ștefana Drăgan's rating of the film The Major

    Mesmerising film! Yury Bykov is a great director and he did a fine job with the soundtrack. He also proved to be a highly skilled actor.
