HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER
"Gripping!...a suspenseful man-braving-the-elements adventure movie!"
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"Heart-stopping! Rich in resonance...a King Lear-type epic of madness and the elements of ... a tale of extraordinary endurance."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
"One of the best films to come from Russia in recent yearsâ€”Don't miss it!"
- Miranda Siegel, New York Magazine
"Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"... persuasively acted, elegantly shot in black and white and altogether a handsome prestige period production..."
- Jonathan Romney, Screen International
"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography. "
- Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
ROADS TO KOKTEBEL
"In less talented hands, the plot could have turned into just another road movie. Instead, [Popogrebsky and Khlebnikov's] taut script, skill with performers and loving eye for natural beauty create a film that recalls vintage Terrence Malick."
- Leslie Felperin, Variety
Winner - Best Film - Moscow Int'l Film Festival
Winner - Best Actor - Moscow Int'l Film Festival
"This parable about faith and salvation is addressed to the same kind of broad-minded arthouse audience drawn to spiritual themes."
- Deborah Young, Variety
