“I watched the unfinished version of the film – then she was still at work. It was in August. It is very difficult to judge or to criticize its creators, despite the fact that I personally was a participant in the events described. But, of course, the film turned out just fine. Brilliant acting complete dedication and sense of humor. Well written script and perfect Director’s work – admired Hertzfeld. But many scenes are quite differ substantially from those occurring in reality. In some cases, do not have anything in common with real events. But it does not spoil the overall impression of the film. On the contrary, everything looks very relaxed, because the goal of the creators of the film – to captivate and entertain the audience.
